Exploring the Pearl Harbor Bike Path With A Felt Bike and Brompton Foldable

Last February I bought a bike from my cousin, Joshua. The Brougham by Felt Bicycles is a beautiful chrome fixed gear bike with a flip-flop hub complete with both a freewheel and a fixed cog. The chrome and and white is in line with its simple and clean look. Once the bike switched hands, though, it turned into a single-speed bike. The thought of riding a fixie without brakes horrified me. Especially since I hadn’t rode a bike since, well, probably elementary school. It took some time, seven months to be exact, before White Nightmare (that’s what Josh named his bike) saw the light of day again. There were a few hiccups, but she got the job done.
