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)

This page of the porn thread has had some of the most porn-worthy posts ever. Hot dogs, beer, classic bikes and skinsuits. I think there is really only one thing left to do:

Just so you know Bruno, it's bad form to post your own bike to this thread. Not saying you have done so here, just pointing it out ahead of time.

Haha thanks for the tip! I definitely read that much ahead of time, and that is most certainly not my bicycle.

Both front and rear spacing on some Fat bikes is 135mm so that you can swap the front and back wheel in case the freewheel fails or freezes up. Fat bikes were originally designed for expeditions or racing in frozen remote areas. IDITA bike and such. Being able to swap wheels increased your chances of riding vs walking.

Those tubes (along with the fork blades) are used to hold fuel for a cooking stove.

Why is there a brake on the trailer? I doubt with snow and a loead they go fast?

I don't see a pivot in the bike/trailer connection that would allow the bike to lean?

The trailer will hold big bags, like Surly Dummy bags, ones from Xtracycle, etc.

The wheel in the trailer has a brake because it's another spare wheel for the bike.

The bike and trailer lean together.

That sounds like it would be really awkward. Hmmm. Gotta thing about that.
