      You can coast with a single speed, fixed gear is fixed... no coasting.

      A Rabbit is not to be wasted on the tentative or weak. Only the worthy are invited, and then only at your own risk. If you have even a modicum of hesitation, DO NOT buy one of these cars. Instead, leave it for a worthy soul who has already matriculated to the sublime ecstasy of what those in the know refer to as a "MK1"

      Why do all females wear ridiculously huge white sunglesses and carry around small dogs?

      because its a fashion phase. is that the same for single speed, its just phase for the in-crowd?

      i cant speak for everybody, but i have fun on bikes. thats why i do it.

      seems to me that freewheel riders make a bigger deal about fixed bikes that fixed riders do.
