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)

That red one with the removable hard top looks pretty good. Not sure what your price limit is.

Just what's so appealing about these? I've never thought much of them. I do know the city of oakland uses them for parking enforcement.

I figure with something specific like that, you would need to open up to Craigslist or eBay to get a decent one. Looking more locally?

Today I ditched Ciclavia to ride my mtb. I upped my gear ratio and head out. It was noticeably harder but not so bad and now the bike feels a little more well rounded because it isn't geared too low to stand and hammer on climbs or totally useless on the flats(still kinda, but that's SS MTB) ~20 miles with 2000ft elevation

I am pooped and I have two burritos ready for my mouf

Today I rode 44 miles on the Jamis with some friends and froze my ass off. Spring needs to turn the thermostat up a few degrees already. My legs are like cooked spaghetti noodles right now and the thought of standing up and walking to the kitchen to get something for dinner makes me cringe.

I just built up an SS MTB too, 26" on 2.0" tires and running 33/19. Feels pretty good to me so far (lots of steep climbs that I haven't had to walk, barely). What're you running now?
