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)

Wow- the lever and the cable housing are built into the bar, which is one piece with the stem. That took some work. Why?

ugh i HATE twisted spokes. its so stupid looking! and those bars! it can't be comfortable gripping something square shaped like that! if its supposed to be gripped by the missile launchers, that tiny brake is pretty much useless and those brakes are fuuuuuuugly! what a piece of crap bike!

I think it may have been featured at Interbike this year. Not entirely sure.

And according to Gerd Schraner, twisted spokes are beneficial to "trick" riders, or as I like to call 'em "tricksterrss"! <----See how that works?

I keep seeing people doing this in NYC and when they ride they look unbelievably uncomfortable. and on top of that they are riding the flats anyway most of the time and hit their own arms trying to steer the bike
