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)

this counts as single speed right? Awesome tricycle for your kids

It's just a concept right now.. but designer Andrew Grigor designed this tricycle made out of bamboo and it's called the Bam Bam Baby.

"Made entirely of sustainably harvested bamboo, it’s strong, flexible, abrasion resistant, hypoallergenic, and quite aesthetically pleasing if I do say so myself."

the sustainability trend is nice when applied practically, but applying sustainability to something which has never had an issue with "recyclability" is nothing more than trendy marketing.

this is bad design-- it creates more problems than it actually solves.

- lasts generations
- can be repaired from almost any damage
- won't warp in the rain
- remarkably durable

there is nothing to solve here-- at least not by an overpriced wooden pos.

I would agree....If this had anything to do with sustainability. Sustainability is different than making something out of substainably harvested materials.

It's a good design. I hope kids get stoked.

If you're gonna get a proper trike, fine, but I have to agree, these would be a welcome alternative to the extruded plastic nightmares that seem so ubiquitous these days.

I'd buy one of those. The design is exceptional, and the wooden hed3 is pretty.
Then again I really like the look of wood.
