Running 1×9 or 1×10 is huge these days. With the range you can get on a cassette many folks like the ease of use and less headache of dropping chain, shifting, etc.

I’m sold on the color and plan to be running a blue one on a new cyclocross 1×10 build I’m working on!

Urban Outfitters Bike Shop

The popular store, Urban Outfitters has seemed to have teamed up with Republic Bike to offer Republic’s popular under $400 singlespeed/fixed gear wheels.  What makes this bike popular?  The price and the fact you can change almost every part on the bikes color.  A good time waster is to press “Random” to see what color options it comes up with for me.
