I could see that happening, a couple weeks' swap.
I plan on THIS as being my next purchase: http://www.dirtragmag.com/reviews/review-gravity-g29-singlespeed
Now that is single speed, but not fixed gear, right? Fixed gear would suck, IMO. You'll have to put some thought into what gear combo you want, too. But hey, nice to not have derailleurs to constantly f*@k around with tuning as cables stretch.
Never met face-to-face, despite technically being in the same state.....but known each other now for something like 4 years, I think?
Agreed 100%, on both counts.
