Default Re: Fixie with a flip flop hub.

I know I wouldn't be putting my 215lbs on that passenger!

overall looks like the bike was done good though.

Im not sold on the dual brake lever thing though, going in a straight line while breaking is fine, but be turning a corner at 20mph where the road is wet or may have a little loose gravel on it and any braking on that front wheel is gonna put you on the ground hands and k ees first with shoulder and head following close behind.

Wonder why motorcycles dont have dual levers......?

The answer is simple and that is that they're very unsafe in many riding conditions, you should always be able to apply brakes independently on a two or three wheeled vehicle.
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
