News from KUMA Bicycle Company:
We will be introducing the KUMA Moxie (in honor of our older dog, Moxie). Yes, a Carbon fixed gear bike with the option of making it single speed. For those of you who need to know the details – from Sheldon Brown’s website:
The one-speed revolution actually involves two different styles of bikes, singlespeeds and fixed gears. These are not the same thing, although they have much in common.
A fixed-gear bike differs in that it does not permit coasting: when the bike is rolling, the pedals will turn, just as with a child's tricycle. To enjoy the one-speed experience to the max, a fixed gear is the best choice if you ride mostly on pavement. A fixed gear gives a degree of control and one-ness with the bike that is not equaled by a freewheeling bike.
With this, we are producing the Moxie, a one geared bicycle frame with the ability for, yes, speed. Why? It’s light and fast. Fast geometry to get you from point A to point B, and C, up to Z, and all the way to 11.
Carbon. Light. Strong. With three color options. Bare carbon (that’s a color), and on the inside of the the chainstays/seatstays, and fork, and inside the main triangle, Chicago flag blue, or Chicago flag red - the colors of the Chicago Flag (similar paint job like the frame above). Oh, and one more thing… a water bottle cage can be mounted on the frame for those of you who need to drink water, lemonade, or milk.
