Currently building a better version of this, I just need to source a rear shock. I found a Noleen on Ubuy that I might get.

Please plug your bar ends. I'm just imagining how painful it would be to have that go into your thigh if you crash.Originally Posted by FreeRidin'
Edit: other than that, a nice looking conversion.
Thanks. I've been deciding whether to do a flop and chop on the bars so I have not gotten around to plugging or wrapping them yet.Originally Posted by polara426sh
On-One il Pompino fixed commuter/crosser/wet day/dirt road ride.
IRD roadie, fixed with the inimitable White Industries Eccentric axled rear hub.
(it's not really as odd as it looks; weird photo angle)
Tansition Covert squishy, RS Lyrik fork, assorted bits for the rest.
Peyto Cycles "Wild Bill" frame, RS Pike up front, more assorted bits.
I believe the clouds in my coffee more than the weatherman on t.v.
Nice pix; where in Colorado were they taken? So do you find it's handy being an RN so you can work on yourself after mtbr?Originally Posted by scrublover
Since the last time I posted these:
New wheels, seatpost, stem, bars, tires. Fits better now. Not really liking the tape, but oh well.
Slightly larger tires so the fenders had to go. Put on a Nitto Dirtdrop stem.
Neither get ridden as much as they should.
Nice. Every time I see a Pompino I kick myself in the ass for not being a bit more patient and saving my money up for a bit longer.Originally Posted by scrublover
EDIT: By the way, why the headtube extension?

What, no white garage door?
Nice pics gio!
Why isn't 11 pronounced onety one?
That a SS ms. gio?
'splody, where'd you get the Nitto dirtdrop stem and how much?
That's for roadbikes. For fixies, it's graffiti or murals.Originally Posted by Ritehsedad
Ben's via ebay for $40. Looks like they have a couple up right now in varying lengths and clamp diameters.Originally Posted by jyossarian
Thanks 'splody. Don't listen to jsharr. You are good for something sometimes.Originally Posted by explody pup
Even a stopped clock gives the right time twice a day.
You ride a fixie w/ a rear brake? Is that out of habit or do you flip flop the wheel alot?
Well, I did ride her with a freewheel but, now she's fixed. I've been getting used to riding it fixed which makes me happy. Currently, I'm trying to teach myself how to skid/skip so I can get rid of the rear brake. I get so much talk from other fixed gear riders like "why do you ride your bike with a rear brake?" or I would just get weird looks from them. *shrugs* In due time, I say.Originally Posted by jyossarian
Skipping's not too hard. Just lean forward and jump a little to unweight the back so the rear wheel lifts up a little. After a while, you'll be able to skip while seated.
