    My Son's New Fixie

    Check out my son's new fixie! Righteous blue paint, chrome one-piece handlebar stem system, flatless foam tread, cobalt composite pedals, padded faux-BMX saddle. Enhanced Leverage Assist (ELA) kit is bolted to the rear axle, which helps him perform the longest trackstands I've ever seen. Cotter key cranks keep it real in the old school...

    Top Power, known for their Off-Shore craftsmanship, assembled this with the care only reserved for 1.2 million of the same bike. 28x16 gearing means 21 gear inches of cul de sac fun. All for the bargain price of $20 + shipping.

    So now my S/S isn't lonely in the garage anymore!

    Thats a pretty pimp little bike. The mag wheels and colour coordination put it over the top.

    Looks speedy. You should put some drops on it, I'm sure that would go over well.

    Ha! I love the attention to detail, like the fake valve stems... No doubt for TOP POWER. Tell him to watch his fingers.

    Swap out the rear for a Chub Hub laced to Mavic 10" Open Pros, throw some chrome eggbeaters on there, and let your kid rule the school.

    Tubular Foam race composition; can't put the miles on them but they sure burn up the neighborhood. Chicks dig a little man on a blue bike, especially my wife.

    Before I took the training wheels off my son's commuter, he would--whenever stopped--call out to me "I'm doing a trackstand, see?" His favorite was no-handed with his arms folded across his chest, nodding his head with sh1t eater plastered on his mug. Kids who love bikes rule.

    The kids of cyclist are the luckiest, they will always get the pimp rides.

    Now if Top Power will only venture into the 700cc and 26inch bike world....TOP POWER THE NEW Cannondale or specialized or whatever

    I know! He's so much luckier than me at that age (when we all had to walk uphill both ways to preschool in the driving snow). As for Top Power, I'm looking for them at the front of the peleton next TdF!
