Check it out and let us know what your thinking..
What more can I say that hasn’t already been said in the title. It’s a video full of chicks and their fixed gear bicycles accompanied by good music.
In our search for cool and new bike designs, we found a young Dutch company that just came out with a new simple bike design. They call it Vanmoof.
Here is some info via www.vanmoof.com :
We are a young ambitious Dutch company that originated out of love for bicycles and hunger for change. At VANMOOF we pursue only one goal: help the ambitious city dweller worldwide move around town fast, easy and in style. We stripped the traditional Dutch bike from redundant hoo-ha that can only break or frustrate and added innovation instead.
We love this slick European design
Urban1cycle got our hand’s on a set of Velocity B43′s, and totally fell in love with them. With the deep 43mm triple walled rim it make’s the Deep V look like child’s play. To some the B-43′s are too deep, to others its perfection.. The big question that was up in the air was how the wheel would perform with brakes. On my Se Lager I use a front brake on my single speed setup.. thus making people question the performance of the wheel with the brake.
After dropping the wheels off @ 66Fixed in St.pete, Fl. Micheal tuned up the brakes, making sure the toe in is perfect on the wheel is very important to make the braking the best it can be. Over time yes the color will probably wear down, but if your interested in a deep high quality wheel, the B43 is the way to go..
Here are some specs of the Velocity B43:
The B43 AKA the Brisbane43, at 43mm deep, triple walled, and in drillings up to a 48h the B43 is the ultimate rim for tricking, and bike polo. If you’re looking for stiffness, rigidness, pure strength, and the bling that goes with it, roll these on your whip.
Colors: Black, White, Red, Yellow, Elec. Blue, Popsicle Purple, Gold, Orange, Lime Green, Ti Grey, Bright Silver, Pink, Olive Mist, Midnight Blue, Sid Blue, Celeste, Anti-Freeze, Frost Blue, Teal, Bronze
Drillings: 24, 28, 32h, 36h, 48h Most colors only available in 32h drillings call for details.

Here are pics of 2010 Giant Seek S by one of our fans “Rapidride” from Brisbane:
“It’s my new Giant Seek S. We have a ton of great cycling paths around Brisbane and this bike is just the thing! It is a 2010 model and has an eccentric bottom bracket, discs and over size head stock. Great fun!”
Simple and clean and lots of fun.
So what happens when all the fixed gear bike riders get old and retire in Florida? They buy a camper bike:

frame with two back wheel and one up front. the rider sits on the bike and can pedal around, moving the
camper from place to place. inside the camper features all the amenities needed in a small and compact
