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)

I don't know the guy or anything, but I've always though this bike was really sweet.

I've got a Dahon Boardwalk that I converted to fixed when my company was planning on moving to NYC from Hackensack and I was gonna have to take the Path in. It's not a bad bike... seat and bars are about where a normal bike's would be. It's a little sketchy sometimes at speed and I have this feeling sometimes it's going to fold up on me midsprint. Here it is prior to ridding it of reflectors, fenders and rack.

i was being sarcastically rolling my eyes when I wrote it...didn't mean it as a rebuke. the only reason I took the 3 seconds to search was because I am lazy and was avoiding all the work I should have been doing.

I love the bike with the moustachio bars and the honey Brooks. Classy folder.

I will give it a go and let you know how that works out for me.

check my sig for an updated version of my article. I have started riding on the track now which is a bit controversial with the small wheels and strange frame, but is a lot of fun. I will update the article soon with some photos of the bike in track mode: the bike looks so pimmed with shinny nitto drops, no brakes etc.
