    99 KHS Aero Comp Fixed Gear build

    Just completed my fixed-gear build...been something I've wanted to do since my college days a decade ago when I worked in a bike shop. Here are some images of it...

    Bits include:
    Brooks Swift saddle
    3T Quill Stem (recycled)
    Nashbar "Bullhorn" bars
    Salsa Bar Tape
    White Industries H2 Front Hub
    White Industries ENO Eccentric Rear Hub
    DT Swiss Double Butted Spokes
    Velocity Fusion Rims (Ti color)
    Syncros Ti seat post (recycled)
    Cane Creek 200TT Levers
    Shimano Ultegra Cranks (recycled)
    Shimano Ultegra Brakes (recycled)
    Chris King headset
    Carbon Fiber Bladed Fork (recycled)
    DuPont ChromaBase Paint
    DuPont SelectClear Clear
    KHS factory decals
    LOOK Keo Classic pedals

    The bike rides like a dream...I'm very happy with the result.

    Cheers!

    P.S. I know it's a conversion and bits were removed for aesthetic purposes...a choice made by ME about MY bike...I'm the one riding it and could care less if you think I "ruined" it or not. This isn't my only steed in the stable...nor was this bike ever destined to become a "classic."

    detail shots are always good but they tend to work better with an overall shot...

    Those photos are pretty much myspace angles.

    This please. It may also help if the pictures are taken somewhere that isn't so dark.

    As requested, here's the only image I have of the bike full-frame (so far)...taken the other day while out on it's maiden ride (iPhone quality). This is my first fixed and I'm really enjoying it, logged over 180 miles over this last week (considering I was out of town last weekend that's not too shabby). I've owned a couple single-speed's but never a fixed...it really does add another dimension to the overall experience.

    Cheers!

    Yes...though unfortunately not as frequently as I used to. I tend to bounce between bimmerforums and M3Forums depending on the tone. I certainly wouldn't consider myself a 'regular' on either (or any) forum lately due to an unrelenting work schedule (60+hr/wk's are normal now)...just no time outside of taking care of the family and myself (hence the bike build...it was a much needed relief from the grind). Thanks for asking.

    Cheers!

    Just a joke. Folks around this forum often make reference to odd saddle/bar angles. Just a play on that since so many were complaining about the photo angles.

    Ah...got it...I'm a little out of touch apparently.
