19: The single-gear bike. The Fixie.
In a world of complexity the single gear bike is elegance in motion. Stripped of over-engineered gearing needed only by those living in the Yorkshire dales or competing in the Tour de France the bike becomes lighter, easier to maintain and you rapidly and easily become fitter as you tackle the terrain in a true and honest relationship. You and planet Earth in perfect harmony.
Complementing your walking it takes you the further distance or at greater speed.
