    here it is... my first fixed

    well apart from the finishing touches, like somebar tape and a front brake, she is ready. and i'm pretty convinced i need a front brake, running around without one was cool but for practicality on the road there is no other option for me


    well here's the blog

    I like it.
    "We are few now, but one day we will rule." That's what one of my fixies whispered as I walked by. I nodded in agreement, and thanked it for not waking the others.

    Perhaps this will happen when he installs the bar tape, as mentioned above.

    ahh you guys have put a big smile on my face on an otherwise rubbish monday morning.
    techone, all going well i'll be at cm

    yes the chain stays are bent (intentionally), a bit like s bend chainstays but less drastic.

    ceya, the fork is safe, i'm gonna get a no frills straight blade cro mo fork from bike fix to sort out the braking duties. just one thought- on the pace suspension forkd they had removable clamped v brake mounts, i might see if i can design one for track forks to run some canti's on

    the frame was made by the raleigh special products dept, the main decals on it said DYNA-TECH and it is made from bonded reynolds 736 (i think that's the right number) tubing.

    oh and i cant belive how strange my legs feel now, how do you guys manage to walk ever?

    You will soon learn to LOVE that feeling! Oh and that's a B-utiful bike. There's something about the stark,simplicity of a fixie that just gets me where I like to be gotton.

    You might be able to get a brake for that fork.

    Nice head badge...

    one is meant to be a bay tree, but intermitant watering and abuse from the wind have left it a bit sad...

    hot pink all the way. all need now is the maching jersy- just have to look out for some hot 90s fluro garb.

    congrats on the modship if that's what the blue star means- although i wouldn't be suprised if my eyes were deceiving me after looking at my saddle...

    looking good. i spotted a very 80s or early 90s bmx top tube protector in my LBS, that was white with a hot pink and blue design for $1. i can pick it up for you, if you'd be interested in having something to match the seat.
