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)

amphibious fixed gear!



forget your lame little Pista Concept, the Di-Cycle Concept has you covered messiah-style!

check it out:
https://www.inhabitat.com/2008/09/16/...ides-on-water/

and the official site - https://gbo.nl/work/portfolio/di-cycle/index_en.html

i wonder if you can put Deep V's on this thing...

Bicycles built for deign competitions are right up there with collabos in my book.

Both usually involve people who know about design and don't know a whole lot about bikes.
