Mormon Fixed


Update: The LDS Elders asked (politely) to have the photos removed — apparently this post was drawing unwanted attention to them. I’ve complied with their request. —Richard

It had to happen, ladies and gentlemen: the marriage of two uniquely American bike cultures — Latter Day Saint missionaries on bikes and urban hipster fixies!

I and several others got a real kick seeing these LDS Elders riding urban fixed gear bikes in downtown San Jose during the Via Velo open streets event last Saturday.


Walmart: Genesis Track One fixed gear bicycle


The Genesis Track One bike with fixed / singlespeed flip flop hub. Unlike the sold out Mongoose Cachet, the Track One “features the best of both worlds – single speed and direct drive.” Somehow, this bike also has “triple ring alloy crank with low hill climbing gear,” while “top tube cable routing keeps shifting and braking smooth” on this “21 speed” dual function bike.
