The Soho came as a single speed, but it has a fip flop (to the hip hop) hub for fixie goodness. I was forced to get a new fixie this year 'cause some punks stole mine one out of my backyard back in June. It was partially my fault, 'cause I didn't have it locked up. But COME ON, who's gonna steal a crappy old steel bike that was converted to a fixie?!?!? What punk can actually ride a fixie? AND, it had clipless pedals! Talk about an unride-able bike!! Oh well, like I said, it was partly my fault.
Me and the old fixie back in January after a commute from work.
When the Soho is ready to roll, it'll have some fenders and a rack on it. And, like I said, I'll flip the hub and throw on a 17 tooth cog, running a 44 x 17 all winter. The 44 x 17 makes it just hard enough that I have to muscle my way up hills and give a little extra when starting from a stop. But that's what makes it the perfect off-season training weapon. Just don't tell anyone, shhhhhhhh.......
