Ave made this frame around 5 years ago, and when Marc saw this lugged frame, he quickly grabbed it. He actually started building this from scratch. This was originally a “chop suey” built from parts Marc hunted in Fixed Swap MFG. Well because back then, parts were so hard to find, either you order from abroad or go to Tryon or be patient at Fixed Swap. But now, this has evolved into a supreme NJS build. All the parts compliment each other, making it a unique and slick steed. I will never get tired admiring this bike. Consider this a timeless classic! Good job Marc!

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!
