This bike was commissioned by an artist who like a previous/similar bike we had done a few weeks ago. This was supposed to be a fixed gear, but at the last minute he wanted it to be a single speed. I feel pretty strongly that singlespeed bikes require 2 brakes. The issue was aesthetics, in that the front wheel has a machined surface, but the rear does not. I offered to replace either wheel so that the braking surfaces match, havent heard back.
