Couple of questions about the 2010 Unit...

Is it possible to fit a rear rack onto these?

Also, should I want to add some gears in a couple of years, can I do it?

this is going to sound silly / ignorant - but why's it got two rear cogs fitted? lush looking bike by the way, and the oldie - what's that front chain keeper doodah you've got on the FM?

I can't see any rack mounts on the Unit so I assume you can't run them on it.

Fire Mountain colourway is the best...need to find one of those :D

This is so he can change the ratio mid ride if necessary - we tried this out and it took us about 2 mins to do :D

The front chain keeper thing is to stop the chain skipping off the front chainrings as there is no mech to do this.

Nice one, or two :D ? So I assume you are running a duo up front as well?

I'm all sold on the rigid 29er singlespeed thing, I love it.
The whole is more than the sum of the parts personified.

Enjoy!!
