tiemeyer is a little spendy for the street. i'd guess groundup designsOriginally Posted by onetwentyeight
id assume he knows what frame he owns. i think its a safe bet he got it second hand. if you do a search for "skidmark" on fixed gear gallery, youll see he has quite the stable.
This "jonny skidmark" chap owns the most ridonkulous bikes.
sorry missed the linkOriginally Posted by onetwentyeight
Skidmark is pretty nuts, he's always winning denver races and comps. The guy just won't stop pedaling.
yeah like i was about to say- tiemier with paint job. can get a little expensive. and a little flimsy but rediculously stiff.

thats what i thought too..
That bike is mad squirrley....
Before the skid, that front end was twitching harder than a meth addict in a dry spell.
You should ride a concept. Same way. It's the staightblade i believe (and steep HT angle but duh.)
I don't mind so much, unless I'm doing no handed stuff. Then I definitely hate it!
i don't know, I'd be squirrely too right before doing that.Originally Posted by Serendipper
dammit! i barely missed that cyclops of his on craiglist. i then saw it on ebay, but the auction ended for some reason and now he has it. i would actually use it as a geared road bike too.
that bike has nasty welds... I dont like it.

Isn't the owner of this bike from colorado?Originally Posted by onetwentyeight
I've talked to him at the naccc's, and I even documented his shattered fork at monster track.
i'm so bad with names.
Like killing cops and reading Kerouac.
the fgg listing says "denver"
I live in Denver, but I am moving to Seattle. The bike was a Tiemeyer, i got it for $50 from some US national team punk, I think he wanted to buy an eighth of weed. I loved that bike, but recently I have sold a lot of stuff in anticipation of my move. I have one track bike now, a custom merlin.
Also, here is a pic of it before the repaint, on the first day, before I broke the wound up for at monster track.
