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)

Camioncyclette - The Best Shopping Cart Bike Design?

I saw this Camioncyclette shopping cart bike design while reading this gizmodo article. Great design, wish it was in production. Could be very useful for hauling some goods.

Man that looks so great, where can I pre-order one?

I've been searching for ages for a practical solution to the problem of transporting my hipster asian girlfriend around the city.

I want the one with the watermelons - but only if they're NJS watermelons.

Yeah all my AHGFs are NJS certified. You can't really get them original in the states, so that means most of them been ridden/crashed by a real keirin racer. The damage is usually just cosmetic though.

Either or, really. I figure if I ride that thing around the city long enough one would just hop on.

You can tell that's kinda what happened in the picture. Dude just puts his foot down for a stop sign, and all of the sudden there's an AHGF in his rear basket and he's like "What the hell?"

Unfortunately you can't get NJS certification on a folder. Yamaguchi and Panasonic tried, but got denied, twice.

Only if they are grown hydroponically in NJS water by a committee approved and professionally licensed growing agent.

That being said, I really want one of these bikes.. with studded tires for the winter.
