Fast Boy Cycles - Fixed Gear Porter


To stay interested, Ezra has decided always to be working on a bike that HASN'T been ordered. Just a project of his own. A chance to try something different, learn something new. He'll be presenting these projects as fully built bikes and selling them here. The sale price will be less than the usual cost of the frame and the build. The proceeds will fund the NEXT project bike.

The classic porteurs were pretty unique in their very low trail and flop. Many of you who have had a front basket or rack know just how much it can affect the handling of a bike. The front end geometry of this machine is designed to minimize that effect. It works! I've been alternating between this thing and my white track bike this summer, and I must say it's a great ride! Best of all, it's a great deal, and is ready to ship.
