Handsome Cycles Introduces Fredward Cyclocross/Commuter Bike Mashup

Handsome Cycles Fredward singlespeed or internally geared cyclocross and commuter bike

If you’re looking for something that can do a little bit of anything you’d want to do on the road (except run through 11 gears), Handsome Cycles’ new Fredward fits the bill.

The Fredward is designed to work equally well as a┬ásingle speed CX bike, 3 speed internal, road single / fixed, 2 speed kick back or a well equipped commuter bike like shown here. Frame is 4130 double butted Chromoly and has all the mounts and cable guides you’d need to run any configuration, but still looks pretty clean if you’re just trying to get your fix.

Pics and complete specs below…

Is it just my poor sight or is the girl’s leg WAY too long? ;-)

“120mm Rear Axle Spacing”?

@WojtekG
No such condition

I second RustyDogg. +1 on the sexy long leg.

Johnny-That sounds like a personal problem. But no worries, some girls like a man for his wallet too. ;)
