Thought I had better pop this here, rather than readers wives, as its modern.
:oops:
My first 'proper' singlespeed. Wheels arrived today and are lovely..Pauls Word hubs. A few bits to change and tinker with, but just about there.
Cowhide seat is in homage to the Modernist era and Corbusiers Pony hide chaise lounge ...less is more etc, which kinda echos the ethos of singlespeeding...I'm full of it tonight!
