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)

Haha, that's probably better than the top-tube mounted rear brake lever. Those belts are actually pretty tough.

What's the source?

It's one of Sheldon Brown's bikes... maybe he had started having trouble with brake levers. on eBay: https://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=150350814362

EDIT: It's a Walmart/ Kent Denali road bike with Cannondale stickers. Sells for $139.

Wow. Someone is gonna fall for this.

It's probably just to keep the brake open after the levers were removed. I seriously doubt anyone used that as a brake.

I don't really care what people do to their bike as far as cosmetics go (my old bike is buried in the thread somewhere) but this thing looks like a pedal strike is going to be a serious problem.

^^^ Richmond Redneck Hipster maybe? All it needs is a "Get R Done" Sticker on the rear wheel to complement the front.

If you took off the Zipp disc though it'd be kinda run of the mill. I guess that one thing is just THAT over the top. Rofl.

Although I guess the chain looks a little slack.

If I was only taller...that is a nice bike and I love the workaround to not having a brake lever.
