    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.

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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.

    EDIT: By the way, why the headtube extension?

    I decided to not do the harlequin pattern on my bars so I just decided to wrap them with red tape. I personally like them this way. I think the background is fitting. My trusty steed:

    That's for roadbikes. For fixies, it's graffiti or murals.

    Yes, it is. I did ride her with a freewheel for some time but, now I'm riding her the way she was meant to be ridden and I love it.

    Thanks for the compliments Ritehsedad.

    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.

    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.
