| Merchant: Performance Bicycle SE Draft Lite Single-Speed City Bike - 2015. Single-speeds and fixies are popular bikes for true bike hobbyists for good reason...they are simple, attractive, low maintenance, make great city and commuter bikes, and are highly customizable. And at just 26 lbs, it's clear SE Racing has put their 40 years of design and single speed heritage to good use bringing you the very cool, very sleek Draft Lite. The Draft Lite is a lightweight, durable, and simple answer to your single-speed/fixed gear craving. Upright geometry, riser bars, platform pedals, and a classic seat mean your city riding or commute will always stay comfortable, but at a second look, you'll find some great SE Racing technology that will make your city bike experience a cut above the rest. A Chromoly frame means that you get light weight, a comfortable level of frame flex without sacrificing efficiency, and strength and durability beyond that of any aluminum frame. The hi-tensile steel straight-blade fork has a slight rake angle for excellent steering response, and absorbs road vibrations so you never feel rattle in the saddle. Alloy components such as cranks, handlebars, wheels, hubs, seat post, stem, and brakes help keep weight down, but also perform at a level that puts you in a legitimate cyclist's realm--no corners are cut with heavier steel parts; they are also far more corrosion resistant than their steel cousins. SE's own alloy wheels and hubs feature a convertible rear hub, meaning that you simply flip the wheel around and you go from riding freewheel to fixed gear riding, depending on your situation and desire.
