    N+2 - Both single speeds

    Brought these beauties home today and found a place of honor for them in my dining room.

    Regarding the Pfar: flip it and slam it.

    Personally, I like a wider saddle.
    The aging cyclist may not get faster-- but he does get slower at slowing down.

    I take it that has a flip hub? I spent three days with a Fixie before getting my N+1 and I knew I would mostly use the SS feature. It only had the one brake however.

    I've converted several bikes to singlespeed but that was before fixies were anywhere but on tracks. (I exaggerate.)
    Those singlespeeds are long gone - doubt I'll ever consider converting a recumbent to singlespeed, much less fixed gear.

    It does indeed have a flip-flop hub. I have the freewheel, if I ever want to use it. Hey, you never know. I rode with a front brake only for two seasons. I realized that a brake on both wheels is much safer. In most situations, I can simply slow down and come to a stop with just some front braking, but there is always "the random element".
