Cinelli Gazzetta in the form of a classically styled two-speed fixed gear We built this beautiful Cinelli for the son of a good friend of ours who wanted a fixed gear commuter bike with classic styling. We started with the bright red Gazzetta steel track frameset and added mostly polished silver parts and a two-speed Schlumpf Innovations Mountain Drive.

We built this black and white Leader 725 recently for a customer in Toronto, ON Canada. He was looking for a fixed gear bike with clean lines to commute on but wanted to have more than one gear to deal with hills. A Schlumpf Speed Drive was a natural fit as it offers two gear choices without any cables or hand shifter.
When Schlumpf redesigned their clutch plates to make them compatible with fixed gear bikes, Neil wanted a unique frame to test/showcase a Speed Drive unit. The Brooklyn Machine Works Gansta Track frame fit the bill with its pierced top tube, box-section fork crown, and airfoil fork legs, seat stays, and chain stays. Only problem - the frame had no provision for a brake.
