It certainly looks part of history but on paper it has a modern twist to bring it up-to-date for the rigours of the city commuter. Looking to insure your new bike? Its boxy design puts you in an upright position, holding on to the bars close to the stem. The FSA chainset is good looking and, with 48t, easy enough to pedal on the flat with a 16 sprocket. So far so good. The classic bars and FSA five arm crankset also look the part and suit the bike and its purposes fine.
Fixed Gear Bikes
Salsa Stormchaser. Enter the Salsa Stormchaser , a singlespeed gravel bike with huge mud clearance, built specifically for rough-weather editions of The Mid South. The bike can handle up to 50mm tires with ample mud clearance, or 45mm tires with fenders mounted. The adjustable dropouts allow for 15mm chainstay-length adjustment—between mm and mm. The bike can also turned into a geared 1x bike, with the addition of a Salsa replacement hanger, which comes with the bike.
A true single speed has the ability to coast down a hill, allowing the wheels to turn without the pedals moving. On a fixed gear, this is impossible. What a single-speed offers is a single gear to pedal ratio with no ability to shift.
