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)

TT and DT reinforcements? This market's saturated, and this bike doesn't really bring anything new to the table.

Any frameset over 4-4.5lbs is pretty heavy. That frame will easily break that scale.

It's designed by a bmx company, most likely with trick riding in mind.
obviously they're thinking about strength before weight.
People probably won't go changing gearing that much, so the short track ends are reasonable.
I think it looks great. i want one.
