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)

They're hiding. The bike thinks it's a turtle.

gipny, you also need to know how big it is. It doesn't help if it has decent parts (unknown), but it doesn't fit you.

Looks like an electroforged Schwinn, based on the geometry and lack of lugs. Pass.
