Nothing brings a rider closer to the most elemental nature of cycling than riding on a fixed gear bike, and the SE Draft Lite gives you the option of a single speed or fixie setup. With a fixie, you're the engine and the brakes, and the pistons and the drivetrain, all at once, while the single speed setup lets you choose when you want to pedal. So what if the cycling mags are filled with the debate over fixie or single-speed? The Draft Lite gives you the best of both worlds, so why fight it?
The SE Draft Lite comes with a Butted Chromoly frame over alloy cranks and a high-flange fix/free flip-flop hub, which simply means that it's fixed on one side and free on the other. You just flip the wheel around and you go from riding freewheel to fixed gear riding, depending on your mood. The hi-tensile steel straight-blade fork has a slight rake angle for excellent steering response while absorbing most of the bumps in the road.
The rest of the componentry is made of alloy, not steel, which help keep weight down, and the corrosion resistance up. SE knows fixie riders want high quality parts, and when you're doing all the work, you'll appreciate the lightweight choices they've made. Best of all, when you're ready to go pure fixie, the Draft Lite has removable SE cable clips so you can remove the brakes for that clean fixie look.
With its upright geometry, riser bars, platform pedals, and a classic seat, the Draft Lite is a clean commuter bike that gives you a comfortable ride, yet the famous SE racing technology incorporated throughout gives you a ride a cut above your average commuter bike. Whether you choose to go single speed or fixed, or alternate depending on your riding needs, the SE Draft Lite is the way to go.
