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)

Interesting observation, I joined here recently and the same 11 threads have been in the "sale" section now for a few weeks with nothing new added. Is their a better site for an abundance of fixies for sale?

I think WalMart single-handedly killed any market for used fixies with the introduction of the Thruster.

Uhhh, maybe for people that have never ridden before. Personally, I wouldn't mind riding a used Rush Hour Pro, assuming it was an older model with gussets and massive downtube. I don't know what happens to the used fixie bikes around here. Do they go to heaven, daddy?

Almost no one posts here because you need a supporting membership to post in the classifieds, which a majority of us do not have.
