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)

Nice bike but yeah, gears would make it better. BTW, your dog looks photoshopped.

My other bikes have gears, but they are far too precious for being locked in public. The Gios rides nice and has already functioned perfectly for retrieving cold beverages. Thanks for the comments.
