Posted in thread: Supplier for single speed frame parts? on 09-04-2009 at 02:07 AM
I ride BMX, and any other bike I can get on, and I really like the looks and strength of the
bmx parts. I am wanting to basicly get the tubing used for a BMX bike and build up a single
speed frame fro...

Flats are just a pain in general. I carry the spare stuff needed. I just hate dealing with it.
That's pretty much the only weakness found on a fixed gear bike though.

The most common thing for me to find is Gu packs on the trail and shoes on the side of the
road. I have no idea why there are so many shoes beside the road. I'd say a few are little kids
kicking them ...

I love the single-speed for running around town and cruising to a buddies place for a few

Volume and FBM(I think) are making track frames now. They're both bmx companies trying to make

just feel l...

Many people go for a big cushy seat to get more comfort. That works for a trip around the
campground, but a serious rider will get no benefit from that. The more you ride, the more
you'll get used to ...
