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)

having just picked up a kettler, i can say for sure that at least the 'air navigator' model is, in fact, sort of a hybrid...

you can freewheel like a singlespeed, but if you apply back-pressure, a ratchet engages in that direction as well and re-locks the cranks to the wheel so you can apply further back-pressure. there is also a stick-style hand brake.

My friend told me his friend is selling this bike, I just wanted to know what you guys think? I'm not buying, just in terms of how nice the bike is, worth the price, whatever whatever.

Well my friend you are between a rock and a hard place. You convert it and you're a hipster dbag. If you don't then you're a closet roadie with no real love for fixies. I'd tell you just buy a sputnik.
