    Pimp Daddy Paddy Wagon!

    OK. Those that know me know that I can't leave anything alone. I got the itch a couple of months ago to get a fixed gear bike and the Kona was a smokin deal. I just felt the need to bling it up a bit. Some new wheels and some shiny bits later here she is ready to roll.



    And yes I know it's a road bike but it is a single speed isn't it......

    Nice, I really like thoose Phil hubs !
    What kind of Crankset is it ?
    I want to pimp my Paddy wagon to but donīt have the money right now. Bought the Paddy just a couple of weeks ago and itīs my real first single speed. Had a cyclocross before with a chaintensioner but that did not work so good.
    Now Iīm in heaven.

    Very nice! I've been wondering what one of those would look like all silvered out, what with the black fork and all. Seem like really sweet frames.

    Very Nice, I love seeing PATH builds. I still order from them from up here in the PNW. Is that a fmf chain?

    It's a FMF chain. It's fun as long as I remember not to try and coast!

    Sorry for my bad english but when you say "coast" what does that mean when talking about bicycles?
    I know what a coast is when taking about coastline -westcoast and eastcoast.
    I read something before that this bike is not good for coast. I donīt understand please help me and explain.

    coasting is when the bike is moving but you aren't pedaling.


    nice wagon!

    Nice work!!

    Going clipless on a fixie. I have contemplated that. Just never had the balls to try it. Never tried eggbeaters though--are they easier to click in and out of ??

    riding clipless on a fixed gear bike isn't any different than riding clipless on a bike that is capable of freewheeling.

    Just curious, but doesn't having brakes on a fixie defeat the purpose. Kinda like having gears but never shifting and calling it a SS. BTW nice looking bike.

    How does it defeat the purpose? Some people like being able to stop within a reasonable distance.

    seems to me that the purpose of a fixie was to eliminate coasting, not brakes.

    No need for a rear brae on their, they just never get used on a fixie, I eventually took my campag rear off as it had seized.

    Lovely ride. What size frame is that?

    I'm about to buy an '08 Paddy Wagon, but don't have the chance to test ride it anywhere near me. Don't now what size to pick... 56cm or 58cm. I've seen some pics of 58cm frames and they look really big compared to my 56cm Stevens Mirage road bike., which feels comfortable.
    I'm just over 6 ft. and my inseam is just under 34".
    Could I get away with a 56cm Paddy Wagon?
    Thanks.
