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 like it. Consider a smaller chainring and knoblier tires to have any real fun in the dirt though.

Hi-ten is a deal-breaker.

Looks like it has fender eyelets.

What's wrong with hi-ten steel? I don't know much about frame quality.

A hand full of disc brake will send you over the bars so fast. Better have that thing really dialed in so you don't nose dive.

Definitely. Still looks badass though. I wonder: what it weighs, what it costs.

looks like it would be better as an ss mtb. Probably mad heavy, but who gives a sh*t.

EDIT: the biggest question: How much does it cost???
