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)

i know the stem/riser combo might look weird, but it feels really comfortable and if my lower back is happy...im happy!

Ehhhh...

I've never understood the purpose of a drop stem with riser bars. Why not just get a "7" stem and flat bars? IMO it should also have a brake, but I don't want to start another huge debate about that. Apart from those things it looks like a pretty cool ride.
