    No good -1

    we do not tolerate laziness and/or multi-speed. this totally contradicts the "go green, go ride your bike" too.

    That's just silly. It looks like he's got semi-horizontal dropouts and didn't need the chain tensioner at all.

    Anyone else think that quick release is a possible Darwin award?

    With the angle of the chain I doubt that the semi-horzizontal DOs would give any significant adjustment.


    Great job on the QR's though. I wonder how much torque that bad boy thumper puts out.

    Yep, I have the exact same bike, different color, set up SS, no tensioner necessary. No motor necessary either, although it would be nice on the hills.

    No way! The fact that it has the motor and regular gears makes it sweet. Wrong forum but oh well. If people keep posting about three speed fixie hubs then why not this? If you don't pedal it's not a geared bike.

    I wish I had one of those when I was a kid.

    Haha theres a kid with one of those on campus. I could just about keep up with him across campus (up/down hills) on my fixie track commuter. I enjoyed his looking back every few seconds to see if I was still there.

    Heard over my shoulder seconds after the page loaded: "...uh, that doesn't look safe...dumbass." Now, I know my wife was talking about the bike with the unsafe comment. I'm also attributing the dumbass to the biker builder, but I can't guarantee that one.

    Are the wheels roundish? Ride it.

    My neighbor just bought one of those kits. It puts out around 3 horsepower and is kinda cool for kickin around the hood. It was actually pretty cheap if I remember correctly, somethig like $150.00. It runs well, doesn't smoke and is pretty quiet.
