(Free Ur Single Speed, YO!)

What is wrong with this picture? A seemingly perfect single speed has to hide in the garage on what looks to be an eminently rideable day.

The problem, my friends, is the suspension fork. Studies have been done. In an attempt to get to the bottom of a new and disturbing phenomenon. This malady, dubbed ASD, or Acute Surly Depression has been determined to be caused by the grafting of suspension forks onto otherwise carvalicious steeds.
I happily announce a new movement: FUSSY, or Free Ur Single Speed, Yo!

See what a difference a fork makes! A very similar steed, but with one important difference. With the removal of the cancerous blight from the front end of the steed (Without anesthesia, mind you, Surlies live up to their name in both word and deed) the bike can go out and play.

A final exhibit.

The owner of this fine steed has transcended fussy compliance by installing a shorter than normal fork, thereby creating super-carving capabilities. So the question stands...

How F.U.S.S.Y. can you be?
