I liked my first fixie well enough to build another, this time with a bit better parts. I went for a retro theme, with an old Raleigh Record frame, Weinmann DP-18 wheelset with skinwall tires, old 3TTT bar and stem with leather cord wrap, etc. I have a set of new cranks on the way but right now it has a set of 30 year old Sakae cranks with the big ring cut off and the bottom bracket axle reversed for a good chainline.
This one has a bit more gear (46-16) so I figured I'd take it for our Saturday morning fast ride. It went well except for a few places where we sprint, when I was churning along at 140 rpm, limited to about 32 mph. Anyway, it's a fun ride, absolutely silent and comfy. I may paint the frame soon but wanted to try it out first.
