Franco’s Leader Kagero

Bike Check: Franco’s Kagero

Everyone went drooling when Leader and Pedal Consumption teamed up to produce an alloy track frame. Only a few of these arrived in the country, and this one, was the first! This frame has been through a lot. From pusakalyes in Manila, to trips in Cebu, to weekend rides in our home town. Surprisingly, even in a battered state, it still remains elegant as if it’s brand new! And Franco sure knows how to put parts in a frame. That beautiful Aerospoke sure makes this ride an eye candy! Gazes out! This beast will surely make your head turn!

What is a Fixed-Gear Bicycle?

The fixed gear bicycle he oldest and simplest type of bicycle is the "fixed-gear" bicycle. This is a single-speed bike without a freewheel: that is, whenever the bike is in motion, the pedals will go around. You cannot coast on a fixed-gear machine.

Many track bicycle any enthusiastic cyclists ride such bicycles by choice, at least part of the time. Why would anybody do that? It is not easy to put into words. There is an almost mystical connection between a fixed-gear cyclist and bicycle: it feels like an extension of your body to a greater extent than does a freewheel-equipped machine. If you are an enthusiastic, vigorous cyclist, you really should give it a try.

There are many reasons, including: Fun, Fitness, Form, Feel & 'Ficciency!
