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)

Quarantined parts bin bike.

While stuck in self-quarantine after a trip to Thailand I built this.




I was looking for a big BMX. It has Schwalbe Big Apple tires, no name rims laced to a junk front hub and a Shimano CB-E100 coaster brake rear. Sakae Super custom crank and Sakae pedals. Brooks Cambium C17 and a simple seat post. The bars are Hot Chili downhill bars with a simple stem from a kids bike. The frame is a cheapie Southpoint hybrid I stripped and rattle canned. They are brought here to Cambodia by the container full.
Fun bike to ride reminds me of an old Sears 20 "stingray" I had way back when.
What can you build from your parts bin. Everything in this build is from my parts bin including the spokes.
