Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

(old) specs Here: http://www.konabikes.co.uk/2k6bikes/paddy_wagon_2k6.php

Apparently it's been in the UK for at least a year. Formula hubs: good call. Bashring: Why?

Still waiting for one of these name-brand SS/fix bikes to come stock with bullhorns... only a matter of time.

I think the "Bash ring" is more of a chainguide in this case...E-13's supercharger is a guide as well as guard...

Please elaborate... I had no idea that "paddy wagon" could be considered a slur.

Perhaps this is what they are referring to when they say Paddy Wagon is racist.

Maybe it's because Irish people in America don't really feel the efects of rascism? They're white, for chrissake.

actually, the irish haven't been white for very long, much in the same way that jews and italians weren't white until, oh, the 1960's and 1970's.

funny, i always thought it was a paddy wagon cause a lot of cops were traditionally irish. live an learn.

+1 on both the point that irish did suffer a lot of discrimination many years ago and that we have absolutely jack **** to complain about today.
