The Single Speed Bolt now features removable Canti/V-Brake Mounts and cable guides! The posts are welded in the "650b Position". So if you want to run 700c you'll have to figure out a different braking scenario.
It makes for a super fun Randonneur style bike, commuter, or all-around-do-whatever bike.
If you aren't too keen on the fixed/ freewheel single speed life, you could also set this bike up with an internally geared hub. Orrr if you want to keep it real simple and still have a brake you could just throw a coaster brake on the back. The possibilities are numerous.
Designed around a 650b Wheel with 48 being the max tire size. You can run 700c wheels with 35 being your max tire size.
You have to bump down to a 650x42b if you want to run a set of fenders.
It is belt drive compatible and has a two bolt coupler in the drive side seat stay to sneak a belt through.
