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)

Wasn't really something I'd throw money at. More a case of throwing out an idea I thought was uniqueish; I knew they already had an SS Pugsley back in the day. I didn't realize that they were already making the fixed-gear from jump.

Kind of cool it's a se trick frame. I'm guessing the extra triangles are for more strength.

I think the main reason it is like that is because it's modeled after the Quadangle.

Yeah of course it's modeled after it but why did they do that design to begin with? You think they did it just for the hell of it?

It took so long because fixed gear freestyle just got big in the past year and a half so i'm sure they did it when they felt like there was a market for it.

Yes a se frame that has 14mm dropouts and a mid bottom bracket with a fork that accepts pegs. Yes I think that frame is for ssfg, and all the builds I have seen of it were built for ssfg. Oh and here it is on iminusd in the FGFS section. http://iminusd.com/fgfs/

The first fixed gear I ever rode was a pugsley. It was awesome.

Redpear,

That is a very cool idea. I've had the chance to ride SRAMs 2-speed hub and I kept freaking out everytime I backstroked the click to shift.

I'm assuming that at some point, someone will come up with a Freewheel-less 3 speed option that utilizes Di2 technology.

It's in Deutsche, so bring your dictionary or your BF Deutsche translators.

Are they out of business I wonder? It reads like they are closed indefinitely.
