    Oh $hit. That bike may haunt me as I sleep tonight.

    Luckily, I will see it in less than two weeks, in person. Whew.

    With a bottomless cheque book and a semi flat commute, I'd do it.

    Ditch the belt drive, put on the new Sturmey S2C, two speed kickback hub with coaster brake.

    Rear wheel skids plus a freewheel, the next step in HipsterRadFahren.

    I saw this bike on the IF blog yesterday. I'd prefer to see it as a typical geared road bike as opposed to how it is. I really have no interest in the belt drivetrain. I do think this bike is a perfect example as to why the Corvid should be offered with paint options rather than clears or tinted clears. The bike is very stiking.

    I know how to make that one about 10 times better a bike,
    put some gears on it!

    I lust after IF bikes as much as the next gear crazy bike head,
    but i just don't get this bike. why not just bury $8k in the backyard,
    and make the same singlespeed in steel with a regular chain?
    I just don't get it.

    Same reason the Porsche Panamera and a cheap Kia are both transportation but one is more desirable than the other.

    how about a Panamera with only 2nd gear?

    I'll take the Kia with full selection of gears...thanks
    It just doesn't make sense to me to make a single speed road bike,
    in this high performance manner, when the lack of gears obviously
    completely compromises the ability of the rider to get the most out of it.

    That's just my opinion.

    I ride a single speed almost every day. It's a basic steel bike with functioning parts.
    You know how i'd make it a better bike? Add another gear, not edge wheels,
    and a carbon bar and stem (although I love the shape of the edge bar, so maybe
    that would be my 2nd upgrade)

    i wish they'd just refine the lugs. that's what the thing (actually) needs.

    Grant,

    Its porn for porn's sake.

    You are overthinking this.
    we are about to break the surly bonds of gravity and punch the face of God!

    It is Tyler's bike I think. He wanted it this way...assuming.

    Change the lugs? Why?

    This is IF's design, much like other builder's who have their signature design. It incorporates something that is unique to them and is a signature on everything they do. Sure I get it may not be some people's taste, but it is one more thing that sets it apart atmo.

    It's like going to a whore house and stating that you didn't feel loved. Pygmalion, but from Somerville. "She could be so much nicer, if she just stopped wearing those cheap thick translucent plastic 5 inch heels, and the textured stockings." "If I could own her, I'd make her into a respectable ride"
