    Show me a fixie with a disc brake

    Since my project build (Fuji Track w/ an Avid BB7) has been put on hold due to AP exams coming up, it looks like I'll have this built up by the end of June at the latest. Unless I can get my parents to pay for it as a graduation gift (beats a car).

    In the meantime, I still have not been able to find a picture of a fixie rockin' a disc brake.
    It's bad when you're 19 and people consider you an "old geezer" in the current FG community.

    I've seen it before. You'll have to swap your fork though.

    because riding in **** conditions on a trail means that rim breaks don't always grip well.

    Not trials, just straight up real mountain biking. Yeah I'm sure, those are my bikes. Look close, no rear brakes. Here's another fixed MTB photo for you.

    I think he meant to write trails. Which made the post funny.

    I don't need a custom fork. Dimension makes a cromo disc only 700c cyclocross fork that I can get through the shop I work at for about $35.
    It's bad when you're 19 and people consider you an "old geezer" in the current FG community.

    I like the idea of a disc on a city fixie. It'd help give back some confidence when the conditions are crap. And if it's properly executed, it likely won't look that bad.

    To the OP. Post of some pics if you go through with this idea, please.

    what's the cheapest you could do a single front disc for?



    i don't know a whole lot about disc brakes. i'm assuming i'd have to have a different hub?

    just FYI. That fork will slacken your HTA and STA by a couple degrees
