here's the fixie..just flipped it over to fixed today! i can get used to this!
didn't you already quote me and post that?
on the last page?
yes, i had to clarify that i was in disagreement!
The steerer tube on my Surly was thicker than any I have seen 30 years of fooling with bicycles. There is simply no way it's going to break, regardless of how many spacers you've got.
My only complaint with Surly bikes is their paint although I don't mind the colours... it is like they got a deal on some Korean War surplus or something.
It's all fine and good until you have to work on a frame as it does not take heat and comes off like glue.
I ride this once in a while. It makes me weak. Riding a geared bike literally saps my legs of strength. Fixed keeps me sharp. I'm selling my road bike.
My Surly LHT fork is burly as hell.
So does the floor.
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
