Oh Shit

Via Bike Snob, I totally didn't believe this was going to happen, but it looks like the Sturmey-Archer fixed 3-speed hub is going to happen. So awesome/ridiculous. Apparently they are calling it the S3X. I guess 8008135 was taken.

Anyway, I'll order one when they come out with a fixed 3-speed with a dynamo.

For some reason, I've been thinking that "fixed gear" meant single gear. Actually, it means you can't coast. Which seems dumb, so I looked up the supposed advantages:

"...the lighter weight of a fixed-gear bike over its multi-speed freewheel equivalent can provide increased performance."

Fixed Gear Bikes: Because ratchets weigh 3 tons.
