ah now you have to admit there are alot more freds on Singlespeed and fixie than, people who have a genuine like for them.
nothing wrong with wanting to be fashionable if it makes you happy
but i think ALOT of the riders are style over fuction.
I can see theives targeting them, when things become popular they get robbed
each to there own but i think when i said fashion statement its abit of a loose term.
maybe "most people on singlespeed are posers"
from the ground up how much does it cost to build a proper one??, horizontal dropouts, decent wheels, chainset.?? i must say id love to build one for the craic so i can cycle one for more than 5mins and see what the big deal is. If i dont like it there seems to be a decent market to shift it on either complete or in parts.
to the lads who posted pics of their bikes, with regards to calling it a fashion statement, im more pointing towards the lads on SS with their adonised frames in really bright colours, cards stuck into the spokes, cycling around in fashionable, but the most unsuitable cycling clothing ive ever seen. You lot are more of the minority genuine bunch!
