    This bike began life as a $350 fixed gear tarck bike from BikesDirect. I started tweaking it and now its pretty awesome.

    Sweet bike, Hophead will probably post up after he gets done with the underseat beer opener mod on all of his bikes.

    Nice setup! So it's not fixed in the rear anymore or you just have front brakes?

    Correct, it's no longer fixed but it has a coaster brake in the rear now so the front brake is from the handlebars, the rear brake is activated by back pressure on the pedals. The second brake lever on the handlebars does nothing and is just there so I can ride on the hoods.
