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)

For some reason this bike reminds me of a lunch lady. It needs a Marlboro permanently dangling from the handlebars.

Chainslack + no foot retention + incomplete pedals + no brakes (edit: coaster brake) + no bar end caps + winter = perfect candidate for another thread - https://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...ist-of-the-day

There is no need for any of that stuff. It is a winter beater with a coaster brake.

it's not a winter beater. winter beaters are utilitarian. being a piece of **** with knobby tires does not automatically equal winter beater

I guess you all never rode a crappy BMX bike with a coaster brake in the winter...
If you cant ride this bike in the snow without fear of injury or death, you need to take a bus!

This bike is the equivalent of running with scissors.
