2013 Meatball

Urban discipline. If it has no gears or brake cables, it must be a fixie, right? Wrong. Devoid of anything that gets in the way of your riding, the Meatball hides all the good stuff in the rear hub. With two speeds and a coaster brake hidden from plain sight, you get the clean look of a fixed gear with all the awesome features of a city bike.

"Logic and simplicity. Same cool fixie look with a simple frame and flat, gray paint, but with the addition of two gears, a brake, no cables and no thinking — so you can fit in yet go faster. The rear hub, using the centrifugal clutch of the SRAM Automatix 2-speed hub, reads your speed and shifts automatically into the higher gear when you hit about 10 mph. The big gear allows for a fast cruising speed. To manually downshift for hill climbing, just coast momentarily; it'll downshift. The auto-shift quickly becomes second nature."
