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)

Looking for a Fixie!

Hello all!
My names Grace from Cali and im completely new to fixies. I am looking to get one soon.
I don't need an amazing high end one but one that looks and feels nice.
Any suggestions, pictures?
Feel free!

Thank you !

Fuego's right about city grounds, they should have a good selection of complete bikes plus they could help you figure out what size you need.

If you want something budget and good to start with, I recommend the Pure Fix, I currently have one myself (The Romeo) and I love it. Riding it on a Single speed for daily commute.
