From Ezra, founder and builder of Fast Boy Cycles:
Just writing you all a quick one to let you know about a few updates on the Fast Boy Cycles website.
FIRST! There’s finally a new project bike.
It’s a fixed gear porteur bike, complete with front platform rack and flashlight mount. The front end geometry is designed particularly to lessen the ill effects of having a bunch of weight over the front wheel. The back end is tight and quick with s-bend stays. It can fit tires up to 35mm. I’ve spent some time riding it over the summer, and it’s great! Best of all, it’s priced about $1250 under what I’d charge to build it for you, AND it’s ready to ship.
NEXT! The site has been restructured a little to make the ordering info easier to find, and there are some new bikes up in the gallery.
It was a good, busy summer. Being cancer-free and married is everything I’d hoped it would be!
As always, feel free to email any time with questions or orders. I am afraid that I am STILL not offering bars, fenders, or racks on their own. I am so much more interested in the WHOLE bike than I am in the individual details. As long as I’ve got enough work building whole bikes to keep me busy, that’s how I’ll be spending my time. Hope you understand!
All the best,
