I’ve made dozens of track bikes and the track is the place for which they are best suited. A road singler, however, is more likely to have at least one brake, usually on the front, and can use either fork ends or horizontal dropouts to fit the rear wheel. We can discuss other details such as rear spacing but The Singler’s purpose is ride in one gear at a time. In contrast, The City bike is a classic: it should place the rider in a more upright position, offer as many gears as the rider needs, and is likely to include fenders, carriers, lighting, and other details. Like The single_speed, a bike well suited for the urban ramble involves details, consultation, and great deal of work that comes at a premium. Let’s talk if you’re interested in any of these specialty models.
