Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Me too, they look sweet. Only problem is I've heard all sorts of horror stories about getting them set up right. It can be hard to fit brake and shift levers all in easy to access locations.
