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)

actually, I'd ride it as is-with the front wheel tracking 3" to the right of the rear wheel especially. In fact, that's the main feature drawing me to it...

Yeah - I think it's shopped. Check out the "Show of your bike" thread on the Mountain Bike subforum - where I got that bad boy from. The last page is full of jackass shops.

I don't know why you guys are hating on her and her bike. I personally love the scraper bike look.

I was thinking the same thing the cameraman said. And I'm not even sure exactly what that was.

I wanna see her use the brake.
