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)

Well, I did it..

After sort-of looking around for a few years for one of these, I found it.

Observe... THE PIMP BIKE.

Some background - a long time ago, I worked at a bike shop. This shop sold konas, among other bikes. One year kona came out with their cruiser line, and I picked up a keiki, which was a pretty sporty little 24" cruiser with cantilevers and a 3-speed/coaster brake rear wheel. It was a nice little bike, even though I had to buy a crazy-ass syncros seatpost to jack the seat high enough for me.

Still, I always had nagging doubts in the back of my head. "Should I have gone with the humu-humu-etc instead?" Well, now I know. This thing rides pretty well, and now I've got a bike for guests and for those nights when I'm planning on drinking too much to make riding one of my twitchy bikes a good idea.
