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)

Wow. That falls into the "so bad it's good" category. I'd move the brake levers forward on the bars though. Also, cross chaining, what a jackass.

Some of these posts are a bit too critical. Don't stifle creativity and call is jackass just because it isn't normal. Most of them are too far, but some of those are really creative / handy / better to reuse and recycle than throw away

Only thing that bike is missing is some cross tires in the rear and a racing slick in the front.

I saw the steel saddle bike and didn't even notice it at first, it was the 26" tires that caught my eye, and the grips. Then the saddle. Not really a jackass bike on its own, but a steel saddle in -15C weather? I touched it with my winter riding gloves and could feel the cold seep in. My balls cringed at the thought of riding that in the winter. And the saddle was so round, only about an inch of flat before it curved down, no where for the sitbones to be without cold hard steel pressing against the taint.

Has anyone combIned airsoft and fixed gear riding? I am imagining some sort of handle bar mounted pellet gun situation, maybe paintball? To me this would be so jack*** that I might actually like it. It would be like having your own James bond bike or something. All the bike polo people would hate it, yet secretly be cer jealous.
