I like this: "I personally think this is a bit of a fad and that a lot of fixed-gear bikes will end up as braked singlespeeds with freewheels, and that after a while, the wisdom of maybe matching a low-output rider to varying loads and terrain will once again reveal the wisdom of gearing". I tend to agree.. which will be great when it comes time to buy cheap bikes! :)
"Specialized last year sold 5,000 of its fixed-gear Langsters, up from 600 when it introduced the line in 2001."
