"People have been riding fixed gear bikes on unpaved surfaces for a long time. Squid we have been calling it Tracklocross, but we certainly didn't invent it. Initially it was probably just called "riding a bicycle." No matter what you call it, riding fixed gear bikes in the dirt is super fun. "
The SO-EZ is Squid Bikes tracklocross specific frame, with a geometry designed for off road agility and sweet skids. The SO-EZ is a great way to add some extra tire volume to your fixed gear smashing and introduce some extra spice to your local trails. It's not less sketchy than riding with brakes and a freewheel, it's just a different way to ride. Free your mind and pedal, and then skid, and then keep pedaling. It's so easy.
These are raw frames, and we can hook you up with some Spray Bike paint to get crafty on your own! If you want to have an artist paint your frame. Get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org and she can help you pick the right artist for you.
