    If you have a fixed gear, or fixed gears. Post them here. Any bike is allowed, as long as it has a fixed cog. Only post your own bikes. Bikes can be extremely vintage or a brand new model. This thread is good for some fixed gear inspiration.

    Here's one. Flip flop hub with a man's gear and a woman's gear. I ride fixed for working on my pedaling and reverse for gravel grinding.

    Old klunker Columbia Topedo with homemade rear wheel. I bolted a sprocket to the large flange of Schwinn front hub.
    2nd setup with front sprocket matchup is really nice gearing ...Stevil

    Not vintage, 2007 Surly Steamroller. It has a flip/flop fixed and freewheel on the rear. I'm a wimp so I have it on the freewheel 20180618_095112.jpg

    These pics show that a fixed gear doesn't have to be a road or track bike.

    Been riding it nearly 100 miles a week on average. Most recent upgrade is a 52t chainring and Phil 17t cog, so hopefully I’ll get more than 600 miles out of a rear tire now.
