Cap Rancier is a miracle maker. Whether with cars or bikes, old rusty hulks become primo show pieces. His talents are being showcased in a new way with the latest bicycle fad, fixies. Fixed gear and single speed bicycles are all the rage, and they commonly start out as a fixer upper. A solid, but lightweight used frame becomes the foundation for a very cool new street machine. Check out this video for an example of a slamming fixie designed by a customer, executed by Cap and staff. If you can Imagine it, Palms Cycle can build it.
Fixed gears used to be just for the track. Not anymore. Palms Cycle in West Los Angeles now carries a wide variety of Fixed Gear and Single Speed bikes for those who enjoy the fun and challenge of going without clusters, multiple chain rings, and derailleurs. Some of these bikes have one brake, some none. Flip Flop hubs provide free wheeling options. And braise ons are in place on some bikes to create the potential of conversion to a more complicated ride. Featured in this video is the Masi line, a respected name in road bikes.
Palms is now featuring a ride for all riders, all styles every Sunday at 4:00. Call the store to confirm the ride each week, but it does go out pretty much every week. Some of the rides are challenging, but no one will be dropped.
