650 Single Speed for Staten Island

 I've been wanting to put up photos of this one as it is a really interesting ride. The frame and fork are pretty simple and conventional other than the 44 mm ID head tube, a good choice for this rider to keep the handlebars from being too high.  The rigid fork is about the same length as an 80 mm shock fork.
 The build is very typical for me-True Temper OX tubing up front, Dedaccai tubing in the back. There's room for some pretty large tires front and rear but the bike will mostly be for inner-city use. Some big slicks will most likely be the tire of choice in this rig. The new graphics are courtesy of Ely at Easton.Bell sports. The new stickers are available for anyone who likes the look. I think it will work well in NYC.
