    Freewheel on the rear?

    Is that a freewheel on the rear? It look like it, but it's kind of hard to tell. If so, are you putting a back brake on there anytime soon?

    I really like the look, and it's nice to see such a cute handlebar being put to good use.

    it is a freewheel, i had been using a track bike to commute for the passed year, and the lockring stripped out on me two weeks ago, i went sailing through a busy intersection and down a hill, had to fred flinstone the bike to a stop. ruined a new pair of shoes.

    i figured i'd give coasting another shot, so i put the freewheel on this one, and just this morning spun a fixed cog on the other side.
    no plans for a rear brake. i want this bike to stay simple. i do need to chop the steerer down a bit.
