AMERICA

AAAAAAAAAMERICAAAAAA AAAAAMERICAAAAA AMERICA FUCK YEA!!!! haha bikes crazy wierd

This is awesome

What I was going for and couldn't quite achieve. You give me hope though.

Seriously thinking about copying it!

I think i'll do.
Just beautyful.

Really?

Why, thank you! I've taken some abuse for how the bike looks, but my son and I love it (it IS a bit garish, but that's OK -- cars see us this way).

Give it to 'em

Nice ride. Effective, and the kids would love it.

And its entirely right that you get stuck into the halfwits on BSNYC who fail to understand that single speed and a fixed gear are NOT THE SAME THING, and the tensioner is doing a job.

Roll your own way man!

Halfwits, indeed!

Thanks for the positives...the many negative comments on BSNYC were all in good fun! Still, it's amazing how many dumbasses are out there...they have no business being on bicycles if they don't know the difference between SS and fixed gear!!!

That's a cracker of a bike!.

I've never seen those tyres anywhere before. Enjoy it!

UR BIKE

Mongoose Man THATS ONE WILD RIDE

watch out!

Their is a SCUD missile somewhere aimed right at you...hahaaha
