Here is a classic bike flipped with our very own spin to it. This blend of old school BMX and a modern fixed gear not only takes its cues from the PK Ripper BMX construction but also its colorways. The Matte Black PK Ripper Fixed Gear is limited to 1,000 pieces into the USA.
Out of these 1,000 bikes, The Standard, New York has taken 20 pieces to further customize for their guests to use while staying at the hotel. As all of you know, fixed gear bicycles are known to have no brakes, but The Standard’s versions will have a back brake (unless you’re a seasoned rider, the city streets are not that forgiving, so a brake can definitely help), as well as a reversible back hub and rim which will convert the bike from fixed to freewheel in an instant.
Along with these additions, we’ve made some cosmetic changes too. The entire bicycle is matte black, and as our NYC colorway is black and gold, we’ve added an anodized gold front rim, and a small anodized gold Standard logo badge on the seat tube. This along with an embossed Standard logo in the custom leather seats with subtle details gives the bike it’s own flavor. Just for good measure, we’re offering a small number for sale, so get them while they’re hot. Happy riding!
