Oh, for all you metal heads, its STEEL! Read more about the bike HERE. ← Previous post Next post → 7 Comments Noah March 27, 2008 at 9:52 am But will it blend? RussRoca March 27, 2008 at 10:27 am 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… Mike C March 27, 2008 at 12:23 pm 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. shishi March 27, 2008 at 1:23 pm 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. Justin March 27, 2008 at 1:50 pm I have ridden a single speed coaster bike for like…2 years now and it’s fantastic. Most relaxing ride in the world. Mike Ch March 28, 2008 at 12:59 pm $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. Jamis_Bater March 28, 2008 at 1:17 pm 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. Leave a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
