    Single Speed Bikes

    Does anybody have one of the above?

    I am looking at buying a bike for myself, haven't had one in years, and I love the look of these. They seem to be relatively low maintenance, too.

    Any info/advice on what to look for would be great.

    I've recently just bagged myself a 80s Peugeot racer from eBay. In the process of converting it to fixed gear. Personally I would avoid the brightly coloured ones, they're a bit contrived (although simply owning a fixed gear/single gear bike is a bit contrived and try hard) and go for something a bit more vintage and in a good classic colour. I've got turquoise frame, tan seat and handlebar grips.

    It's also worth adding that single speed and fixed are different beasts. Go SS if you live somewhere hilly so that you can at least freewheel down hills. Fixed is great for flat cities.

    Have a look on lfgss.com for advice - they're a helpful bunch with lots of bits for sale regularly.
