    That bike is plenty solid with those pedals. in fact the only thing that could top those pedals would be some crank bros. 50/50s. You need some badass platforms to match them tires.

    Ditto, but I admire anyone who has the guts to say F that, I'm rolling some thick ones that can roll over the end of time itself.

    i'm guessing that the streets he rides on suck a whole lot (look at the road the picture is taken on) so those tires make total sense especially since they are slicks. i would probably do something similiar if i had to ride on sh*tty streets like that.

    am i the only one that noticed that the guy has no way of stoping. ive seen a lot of bikes like this, no clipless or clip in pedals and no brakes. i saw one on the bus just like this last time. i don't get it. i can see riding without brakes if you think your tuff, but without clips?

    Well, just to play a little 'devil's advocate' here, when I'm manuvering around peds, I learned the hard way not to be strapped to my pedals. Slowing down, standing on the pedals with all your dead weight, rolling on the opposite slope of a steep hill, and putting a foot down, are all effective methods of stopping a fixed gear w/no brakes and platforms. With all that said, I prefer the control of riding connected to my bike. I don't even like riding my freewheel bike without clips anymore!

    Playin' devils advocate here. I've got pedals like those on my mountain bike and they really stick to your feet. See them pins? Don't ride barefoot. They stick into your shoes and you've got to work to get them off. Those tires look awesome, by the way. Kinda like full on slick Hookworms. Neat bike.

    Also, that vintage is sweet ass.

    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    That's a really cool use of an old steel MTB frame.

    I think that'd be an awesome around town bike. I'd put brakes on, of course, but those tires + fixed drivetrain would be rad. And comfy.

    In fact, I've been thinking about doing something remarkably similar with my spare 1x1 frame.
