The single speed arrives

It's here and damn it's quick, no brakes, no gears, just a fixed 48-16. It's about as smooth as it gets.

Of course you won't be going on the public highway with no brakes now will you!

Looks awesome Will, can't wait to take it for a spin - although I might wait for the addition of a brake to be on the safe side!

its amazing to ride, very smooth, very very quick, the hard bit is taking corners without your pedal touching the ground. It gets very very fruity very quickly when that happens!

I've been following your blog recently and then spotted this article on the Make Magazine blog. I don't know if you know them, but they are an American magazine who publish articles about, well, making things. This one is just saying that tomorrow they're posting a video podcast on how to build your own single speed. Not quite as hardcore as that thing of beauty that is the fixed wheel you've got, but fun none the less.

Oh, well done on the business and your crime fighting. You are doing Hereford proud.
