    Winter see's all the road bikes go into hibernation and the Fat bikes come out to play. But today we get a nice warm day (45 degrees) and with a below average snow fall this year the roads aren't super bad. So it was time to pull out the good old Single Speed for a tad under 15 miles of leg trashing fun.

    What this guy does not say and it is not clear from the video is whether the bike is actually a single speed freewheel or a fixed gear variant.
    I am now 74 years young but after a Winter respite period I rode an 84" gear fixed wheel on my then 1937 Hetchins Curly (Vibrant Triangle) through the springtime months which got the legs working again and helped loose the biscuit and cake effect from my midriff which resulted in wakening-up my six pack.

    Ah, it's just Zip, fellow youtuber. Leave a comment on his video via youtube. He is real good at getting back to posters. Heck, I'll point it out to him, friendly feller! :D

    It's a Single Speed freewheel, I don't pull it out that often because I've been riding trails more now. At some point it will be going to my youngest son.
