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)

1st step is to define budget. my ideal fixed gear would be a custom Ti bike from one of the reputable renowned builders, but that's a different story if a budget is in place - how much $ are you looking to spend?

It's ALL about the budget. Angry Scientist - I am riding a Desalvo Ti single speed and it is phenomenal! It's simply the best bike I have ever owned.
