    Has anyone seen the single speeds at Wal-Mart?

    Just wondering, It says "Fixies" and they have them all colored out....I mean they look good....And 99.96!! I'll probably pick up one just to mess around with....Put a little aftermartket parts on it...

    I used to ride to Win ... Now I ride to Grin

    "Wal-Mart's attempt to be trendy" ... I agree. At least it has a flip flop hub on it

    We had a fresh go around of this, so everyone is tired. Maybe we just need a sticky thread where people can post their opinions and not muck up these other topics.

    FWIW, I built a Cannondale road bike up as a single speed for less than a hundred dollars, that includes the price of the bike.
