How to define the style?
Well, i would like to know if there is some word that defines this style of bikes, minimalist, with no gears, no breaks(maybe a coaster), no cables, be it fixed or single.
I went to a bike shop asking about converting a old road to a singlespeed, what kind of cranks would i need, etc. The guys there looked shoked and panicked (but why????), and one of then told me that i am going to kill the bike. And if i put the bmx cranks i asked before (44 tooth) no matter what, i would end up spining the pedals like crazy without moving at all (i donīt thik this guy ever considered that a 27 wheel has diferent radius from a 20).
So i think that is a need of knowledgement of the existence of another styles, and lines of thinking, and a strong word or definition would help a lot. All i need to do is to say: Itīs the ????? style. And let then burn they heads trying to figure out.
