    Despicable Disgusting Blasphemy!

    Sorry, I am not one to get worked up over conversions but this takes the cake as being the worst candidate I have ever seen!


    my spelling correction aren't coming up in the title, how embarrassing.

    Yeah, it would look better with the braze-ons and hanger cut off.

    Fixed the title for you.

    And I agree. That bike should be full campagnolo Record (Super Record perhaps?) equipped and hanging in my study. A beautiful example of a road frame that shouldn't be stripped down for fixed gear use.

    No worse than ANY OTHER fixie conversion.
    You could follow the rider around until he does a faceplant into the back of a garbage truck and salvage the frame after the EMTs cart him off.

    Awww....lighten up. His only gaffe was not having a Campy brakeset on it. (Hate to see a road bike with no brakes, and cable guides. One may as well keep the brakes, you don't have to use them).


    It's not like he commited a cardinal sin, like repaint or shaving braze-ons!

    He is forgiven. But honestly I would have to ride it for a few months for a deeper analysis of it's worthiness.

    A picture just won't do.

    I'm not in favour of riding brakeless on the street, but I can see why people do it. I've got the Carlton Grand Prix sitting with no tape, no levers, no brakes etc, and it looks so cool I just want to slap a chain and a fixed wheelset on and ride! Anyhow, I think it looks cool, and I certainly don't mind that he's not running gears on it.

    Super Corsa! In blue, and my frame size! Gimmie gimmie gimmie!



    Truth be told though, I'd be hunting down a Super Corsa if it weren't that I've heard that they have a tendency to crack in spots...

    Take care,

    I vote that the owner receive a damn good slapping aka "Flying High" style and his bike taken off him. I also volunteer to "look after" the bike.

    P.S.: Only thing I can find to complain about is that it's a perfect waste of a Victory strada gruppo. Should have used Super Record pista.

    You take care of the slapping. I'll take care of the bike. You can have the wheelset. I'll take the frame

    I'm in with this particular Super Corsa.

    It's ok that there aren't any brakes on it. There aren't any pedals either.

    I happen to think that's a beautiful bike. The owner has in no way damaged the frame be removing braze ons so I don't see a problem. Fixed gears can be lovely bikes. Thet distill the bicycle down to it's purest form. While I can't ride one where I'm at without a brake (too many hills) for those that live in a topography where you can it makes for the ultimate in uncluttered bike buildup. here's my beater Here's my beater fixie, which doesn't violate a frame anyone lusts after lol. Other brake levers on there for something to grab when climbing.

    The stays on that particular Technium are steel, I hope - correct?

    I dont know, thats a pretty clean looking Cinelli. It still has the braze-ons and derailleur hanger intact, so I guess it be o.k.

    Of course if we were 'Bike Forum's' Gestapo we'd have to "detain him" for a few hours, check out his bike, and after a thorough trouncing send him on his way.

    I don't know, I'm getting "mellow" in my old age. My take is that he didn't destroy
    the bike, and if thats what it takes for him to ride it, so be it.
    Of course if it were an old SC (old logo) or Mod B then I'd be screaming for
    his head on a stake (or maybe a few old spokes) outside of Cycles D'Oro

    Okay Okay, he didn't do anything that can't be put back and that is good I just feel a Cinelli deserves better. If you wanted to make one of your bikes a fixed gear would you take the best one out of the bunch and do it? Probably not. That bike just screams super or C-record to me.

    You aren't taking into account that this guy's best bike might be an NOS curly-stay Hetchins, and that this Super Corsa is the crappiest of his collection...

    Well, yeah. The best bike in the bunch is going to ride the best, regardless of drivetrain.

    As forum regulars know, fixed-gear is decidedly NOT my thing, but as long as the conversion is done reversibly, with no damage to the frame, I don't see a problem. I do strongly believe, however, that a front brake should be required on every bicycle ridden on a public street.
