Those that ride fixed know it's not a trend or a bandwagon to jump on. It's all about simplicity. The first bicycle invented over 140 years ago was fixed so we know it is here to stay. The Ringleader is a true minimalist with no brazeons for water bottles, brakes, fenders or racks. Just pure stripped down goodness and nothing you don't need. The geometry is inspired from a traditional track bike but meant to be a fixed gear for everyday urban riding.
Ringleaders begin with tried and true Japanese 4130 double butted chromoly. This material is light, strong and in it for the long haul. Crowning touches are the lugged seat clamp and our custom laser cut dropouts stamped with the Traitor name so you know it's business time. The rear brake arch has no hole in it, but can be drilled for those who need a rear brake option and there is a brake hole on the fork.
