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)

Anyone else think this looks like an alright utility bike?

No? Just me? Okay I'll wait for the inevitable food/squirrel discussion.

A utility . . . bmx.

It looks difficult to steer, although I suppose your passenger is supposed to help with that.



As for an actual utility bike, it looks like it would be a giant pain to go more than 5 miles an hour on the thing.

Squirrel?

Looks like a perfect way to transport your squirrel, if he'd just stay IN the dang thing.
