    I dig. The Paddy Wagon is the only off the peg fixed gear bike I'd buy.

    Yep. If they offer this as a frameset I may go for it.

    Damn it. I thought that was a link. You got me.

    Gearing looks to be the same as last year. 42/16 if I recall correctly.

    Ok.

    quality steel
    decently speced
    affordably priced
    clearance for fatter tires and fenders and fender eyelets!
    more relaxed, road geometry (for those who are into that)
    clean, modern look

    for me personally:

    available in 58 (unless they've changed the sizing for 2008 which I doubt), and hopefully as a frameset


    It's gonna be the Pista Concept for geezers like me.

    I test-rode the 2007 paddy wagon...i dunno, it felt kind of cheap to me. I guess it's just not my cup of tea. And i think they're kind of ugly...

    Can't wait to get some bullhorns on mine. I'm not a big fan of the stock drops. The drop is too shallow for my taste.

    I didn't realize how dumb that sounded. No; I had bullhorns on my conversion that got stolen , I got a Paddy as a replacement, don't like how shallow the drops are and I wanna go back to bullhorn because I found them way better for stretching out on the bike and climbing. The stock drops on the Paddy are too shallow and short for my taste, not enough depth in them for serious climbing. Also, I find that I'm riding on the brake hoods most of the time, right around where the horns would end. Grok?

    I've got my LBS checking on ordering this frameset. The LBS guy told me that the Kona rep said there will also be a version with track ends, a derailleur hanger, and downtube shifter bosses.

    They totally stole one of the Bianchi San Jose color schemes, and the Bianchi still looks better. That's sad.
