Official Fixed Gear Thread

what's everyone's gearing? i want speed and skid. 44/15?
Feb 10, 2010 @ 19:12
I use 48/18, but I'm a bit weak. Sometimes I'd like a slightly higher gearing for speed, but what I'm running now is good for accelerating and works well with my strength. Skids are easy on it too.

46/17

Feb 11, 2010 @ 04:24
48/16. i really have to shift forward to skid without foot retention. im getting a 17t cog soon. other than more skid patches, does it make that much of a difference?

I occasionally run 48/19t, I don't have to get out of the saddle to skid.

As I grow older, I pay less attention to what men say. I just watch what they do.

51/18 aint a very high ratio, just a really big chainring

freight bags makes a bike box, but it's pretty expensive, around $250

Not a big ratio at all. 76 or so inches.

Just not spinny, like lower tooth ratios.

And doesn't wear down the teeth as fast, either ;)

i'd actually say it's a pretty good price for a large luggage bag. handmade using plastic and cordura.

Anyone in here own a single speed and fixed gear bike? If so, which do you prefer? If not, anyone in here own a single speed? If so, how do you like it?
Feb 22, 2010 @ 10:26
bianchi pista, fuji track, charge plug, iro mark v
Feb 22, 2010 @ 17:46
whats a good fixie witha budget of 600?


Try www.bikesdirect.com
Feb 22, 2010 @ 17:48
oooof that bike up there is hideous.
single speed is fun, but if i was running on a coaster bike, why not throw some gears on there.
fixed is a totally different experience, i prefer it for being completely one with the bike, but some have difficulties with that.

just try it out .
