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)

My new ride

The existence of the frame was tipped off to me by some one on this forum so I thought it fitting to post a picture. The bike is completely and utterly ridiculous.Also most of the work was done by bike works nyc(drivetrain + wheels). Enjoy!

I;m sorry it ultra sport and cxp 21. I must be thinking of car tires. The angles not so bad is really fun to ride its just sensation that your so close to the front wheel and therefor the ground thats weird.

it looks diesel in the first pic, but the one where your riding it, it doesnt look that big, might just be the angle though. very cool bike though, prolly gets alot of stares
