Make some trouble
while looking good

The simplicity and the safety of a single speed drivetrain is well understood. Pedal, coast, and stop securely with the freewheel and caliper hand brakes. The advantages of single speed over 18 include, less weight, cost, and maintenance, and the experience of being closer to purity.

The pull back upright handlebar roadster is enjoying a resurgence among the well experienced city riders of San Francisco, Denver, Chicago, New York, and Portland.

This comeback occurs for good reason. The ergonomics of this configuration generate a lot of power. With easy coordination, a rider who pulls on the grip while pushing on the pedal utilizes those large untapped back muscles to make power. Exploiting this fuller balance of the ample muscles, a rider produces a more total body propulsion force with less exertion.
