Single speed? Pros/cons and options

No.1050209 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
I have been interested in single speed bikes for a while. I have experience with many varieties of BMX and cruiser bikes but not any fixies/track bikes or SS mountain bikes. My opinions about single speed change depending on the riding conditions and the maintenance needed to keep my bikes running well. I ride a geared mountain bike, folding bike, and road bike. What are your opinions on single speed bikes? What about coaster brakes vs. rim brakes vs. disc brakes vs. fixie skidding? Fixed gear vs. freewheel/coaster? What kind of handlebars?

Depressing Train Stations

Does anybody else really like depressing sort of train stations? I can't really explain it, but I'd rather go to a depressing train station than a futuristic utopian one.
