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)

Ignoring the backwards handlebars and the kindergarten lock for a second, is that a coaster brake AND a hand brake?

Not a coaster brake, no brake arm on chainstay, looks like an SA 3-speed to me.

Ah, curse my eyes. That would've been some seriously badass double-braking action.

doing some googling, it looks like Bursford had this super-aero bike built to break the world's 'static speed record'.... yeah, it goes real fast ON ROLLERS.

Mebbe tighten the chain first? seems to be a bit slack. Also more importantly, I'm not sure how to get the brooks on it.

Are you sure?

I assumed it would be going for the world assisted speed record or something. Pulling behing a car or whatevs.

Riding that thing on rollers makes no sense whatsoever. There isn't anything to be gained by building an insanely light carbon monocoque for rollers.

I'd probably go with hobo or maybe some mustache bars. I prefer a more upright riding position.

Basket on the front for grocery runs.

If the alleycat involved a 10 mile decent at 8% with no turns or bends, you'd dominate.
