    Ha…sweet….that’s sorta like what I did with my Surly Steamroller….swapped out the fixed wheel and built a 3spd coaster wheel for it….it was my stealth geared bike…

    Eyelets on the fork but not on the rear dropouts? I bet there’s no rack eyelets on the seatstay, either, and I can’t tell from the site if the rear seatstay bridge is drilled for a brake. A for effort in making a trendy fixie wannabe/poseur, but a bit of a let down as far as an adaptable commuter goes.

    I just sent a message to see if the rear was drilled. If is has good tire clearance it would be a great beater/winter bike. Bullhorns, those would be off in two seconds.

    I have ridden a single speed coaster bike for like…2 years now and it’s fantastic. Most relaxing ride in the world.

    $385 Complete??!!! You should get one to review! I haven’t ridden a coaster break since I was a kid, and I wonder if anyone could comment on how that effects riding.

    I like the concept, but it could use some eyelets for the rack. Although a rack solution is still out there for it. This site has covered that.

    Watch the video on the site though. LOL. The owner has all the charisma of a wet chamois.
