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)

The bike in itself isn't offensive. The price = LOL

nice that you know it'll probably end up in this thread eventually. digging it though (it's obviously the big-boy chainring that makes it though). srs talk, stop it with the seatpost rear brakes. a front brake really aint a bad thing

are you claiming to have defied physics?

if so there are a lot of moto gp and le mans teams that would love to shred the unsprung weight of their massive front brakes

A little nugget here:

When actuated the rear brake loses something like 70% of it's stopping power. When used on a bike, it's only for slowing you down, where the front doesn't really suffer from power loss at the moment of actuation, which is why it's for stopping.

I actually saw that a couple days ago looking for a bike and was like no... he can't justify that markup.

its not just on a bike. i would like to see anyone ride a motorcycle at highways speeds with only the use of the rear brake (that tiny disk will in fact lock the wheel up) or drive a car only using the emergency brake (it too is powerful enough to lock the wheels up)

while both rear brakes will stop the wheels, neither will stop you worth a crap

Edit: the more I look at the Pista Concept, I'm not sure if its a totally intentional thing, or a 'F you' thing- MSW rear, NMSW front- unless he has a MSW pair and just stuck the Arospoke on front, and didn't want to turn it black, so suck the brake on the rear... but even on the front, the lever would be a pain to use with those bars. I don't know what to think.

Anyway.

Yes, but if there's a trick that requires a downtube pad, I kinda want to see it.

while taking a motorcycle permit test i remember reading that
using both front and rear brakes stops you 60-70% faster than just rear brake, in terms of distance.. so you would stop in 6 ft vs 20 ft, HUGE difference
even though it's not that sever on bicycles, it's still a great idea to have a front brk

I e_mailed the dude...I'll post his response if I get one. I told him I would give him 100 at best for the bike.
