Very nice fixie

I have featured this bike before as a form of art, but this time I am looking at it in more detail, as it has some interesting features…The lights, frontand rear ….not very clear photo, unfortunately, but you can see it is very small and has a clear plastic housing. The cranks and pedals are very unusual, the short pedals well suited to fixed gear riding, although I am not sure if there is any advantage to the thicker cranks …The rear wheel can be converted from single speed to fixed gear ….The cable guides are superb, chrome plated and very neat …The Brooks saddle is a classy touch …All in all, a beautiful bike …

    Funny you should ask that Annie. I love the simplicity of them and would be interested to try riding one. I am not terribly ahletic anymore and they sound as though you would need to be fairly fit to ride one. I particularly love the styling of this one (and many other fixies), which is a mix of modern and traditional components.
