     I don't think we have one of these. I searched and I did not see one.

    Post away

    What made me think of this was putting some fixed gear wheels on Craigslist last night. Hundred of emails, ridiculous. I could make a living selling fixed gear parts down here.

     I am still saddened by the theft of my bike.

    I do, however, still bike.

    On another note, I miss the convenience of a car!

     All it takes is for winter to get going and you won't mind so much. I'm the same way though, on my bike as much as possible right till the snow hits.

    Velocity B43. I got a wheelset on Ebay for about $100 less than a H+Son wheelset.

    Thanks. I've been cruising around the neighborhood on it. I haven't ridden a BMX bike since I was in the 5th grade. It's a blast to just goof off on it after work.

    What's the appeal of a single speed? Not being snarky, just interested in why people like certain bikes.

    They're cheaper and easier to maintain. My city is pretty flat, so granny gears aren't really necessary. Riding fixed also helps you develop a smooth, efficient pedal stroke. I'd like to get a super high tech light weight road bike someday, but I'll probably hold off until I blow out my knees on my fixed gear.

    Hmm, I can see that. This is my current ride:


    http://montreal.bixi.com/home/home-bixi
    $78 gets me a full year membership, whereby I can use the bike any time of the day for 30 mins, as often as I like. If I use it for an hour, it costs me $1.50. No storage issues in my apartment, and no worries about security in a city second only to NYC in terms of bike theft.

    Plus it leaves me more money to look at DH bikes.

    I'm 6'3'' or 6'4'' and I have a Large. I think the Large is 58cm.
