interesting seeing that singlespeed with carbon wheelsets

well....
fixed gear

people mix and match all sorts of stuff

the Single Speed thing is funny
as it was once a fringe low budget counter culture thing
now it is a high dollar affair

it weirded me out some years ago when I started to see Single Speeds built up to cost more than a geared bike
but now
that is pretty much the deal

most Single Speeds are serious machines!
with only a few production Singles under a grand

I love the Single Speed
but
I also love geared bikes...

if given the choice of only having one

Gears would be my answer

I thought about if I could only own a bike or a car
I would prefer to live in a world with a bike and not a car

lucky for me I am not forced to make such a choice

I also have the luxury of owning several bikes

this is an amazing world
people dying in Darfur or the Congo
and I live in a society where a 2 thousand dollar pit bike is a rational purchase

we are lucky

we are definitely lucky
