58cm tig welded steel frame and fork | 700c alloy wheels | flat bar style handlebar | front and rear hand brakes | flip flop hub with fixed gear and freewheel included | the takara sugiyama is all about keeping things simple and getting it done without breaking the bank. At the heart of the sugiyama you'll find a strong hand crafted steel frame with horizontal dropouts that can handle the abuse of the big city. City riders told us that they didn't need derailleurs so we listened and outfitted the sugiyama with a flip flop hub so you can run it as a fixed gear or in standard freewheel single speed mode without having to worry about adjustments to temperamental components. The 32 hole alloy wheels roll on loud kenda 700 x 32 tires that are capable of withstanding less than perfect roads. Front and rear alloy side pull brakes round out this spectacular spec.
