Nice, good to see another single speed Yo, though I think it would look even better with flat bars 8)

Looks like a bike made for riding.

So I like it.

The dual ratio has worked-out well for me (38/35t chainring, 16/19t freewheel). I city-commute during the week then ride trails on weekends. I can slip in a quick ride after work without switching bikes or ride a long trail one-way then zip home by road. Sometimes I wish I had a lower gear on long climbs, but I just walk it - what's the hurry?

Love the Yo but the Brooks has got to go. Turn it into a protest chant: "Hey, hey ho, ho that Brooks has got to go"
