Need some wet wipes now, possibly a cold shower. Saw one at the Argus Expo. Yoh! Yoh! Yoh!

 

Took one for a spin today. The rear wheel is reversible in that it has a fixed gear on the one side and a free hub on the other side. You can use it as a fixie or a single speed. Handlebar is very narrow though....

Reckon it is a no from you then dry.gif

Sorry, but I just don't get the whole "fixie" scene, especially "bikes" like this that desecrate the once-holy ground of a classic manufacturer. I used to own a Pinarello Montello SLX (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pinarello) which I loved. I am abhorred by what has happened to Pina of late. First the stupid squiggly seat stays and fork and now this. I suppose it's what happens when a once-great company gets taken over by the marketing dept.

 

In my opinion, if you really want a fixie, build it yourself from your parts bin - no self-respecting cyclist will want to be seen within shouting distance of you on that Pinarello ... erm, thing (there just is no word for it).
