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)

Hi, Newbie here.....

I'm not sure this will post as a link. Can anyone offer suggestions on this bike please? In case the link doesn't work, it is a Trek Cruiser Classic. Thanks, Mark

not really an expert on cruisers, but it looks sweet, and it gets good reviews.

have you thought about internally geared cruisers, they are super reliable and offer more than one gear, for climbing, or bombing. trek has a line of bikes i think they call them "limes"

It is a nice looking bike.

I do have a few classic cruisers and ride them often, SS and FG are cool but there are different bikes made for different rides Sometimes you just want to cruise! Heres my cruiser baby! Oh Yeah! (I know Ive posted it before but hey, shes a sweet ride and I love to show her off!)

I just switched out the old wheelset for a set of Worksman Super Heavey Duty wheels the rear wheel has a cog thats built for indutrial bike use so I had to order the "Heavy Duty" chain that goes with it

wtf is with all that extra metal? also, why do cruisers insist on having geometrically inefficient shapes? shouldn't a bicycle builder know that a triangle is stronger than a squiggle?
