You can have the best of both worlds: Be a Fred when you do your errands on your single speed.., wear a boonie hat and even the tell-tale sandals. Even old ladies will snicker. Then, go home and get suited up and head out your door with your customized Scott Foil to the adulation of crowds of paparazzi. They'll never believe you are the same rider who was on the J.C Higgins with flies and dogs chasing him. You can have it all.
