I found a long thread on the motobecane and found out it comes fixed out the box, so I'll be running a front brake on it. I read through them all and it seems like the motobecane is a good entry level bike with a decent frame, but I didn't see how it stacked up against the windsor hour since they are both the same price now. Its a tough decision. I'm new to all of this, so I appreciate all the help. poe

The freewheel side doesn't have a cog included.
So, if you were gunning for a fixed gear, you're all set to go!
If you only want a front brake, the rear brake they give you with the bike can be used as a front brake, you just need to get longer hardware to attach it to the front fork.
your lbs should have that on the cheap.
oh, i thought it came with everything needed to go freewheel.. the marketing copy is a bit misleading.
