Hunting for some computer supplies on Saturday morning, I ran into these urban single speed commuters branded by the high-end metalware maker Georg Jensen. They’re beautiful in person, but utterly impractical.
those look an AWFUL lot like rebranded SÃ¶greni Classics. Thatâ€™s reinforced by the fact that both SÃ¶greni and Georg Jensen are Danish companies.
Iâ€™m not sure Iâ€™d call the SÃ¶grenis impractical except in that theyâ€™re spectacularly expensive. The seem immensely practical presuming youâ€™ve got a bottomless bank account.
You could argue that fixed and single were totally impractical; especially those ones with the really small bars for cutting traffic. Having just spent a day riding [a single speed folder](http://www.flickr.com/photos/huggerindustries/2952547903/), they’re also very liberating to just get out and ride as transportation.
Like with Civia, we have no issued with high-end bikes. There are plenty in the low end and if it appeals to a clientele with disposable income, great. Get them out on the bike paths as well.
I saw those in the Taipei 101 shop. I agree, very pretty but my fixed gear conversion
does the job just as well without a bank loan. Not that I wouldn’t turn one away…
