    Some more pics of the Windsor Clockwork now that the skies have cleared and there's some sunlight. The color is a very dark glittery purple, that looks quite nice. I changed the stock pedals out with BMX platforms that were takeoffs from my SE Draft Coaster. Eventually I'll get some nicer silver MKS touring pedals and better tires. I also changed the stock 16T freewheel with an 18T from my parts bin.

    Nice looking bike, if they would have had a 56 I would have bought two at that price.

    I know one can never have too many bikes, but why'd you buy this one if you already have so many others? What purpose is this bike gonna serve (merely curious)?

    It actually fits in a finely defined niche within my ever-growing collection. I currently own 3 SS bikes plus a combo SSFG bike, all of which are rather on the heavy side. I had actually thought about getting a small 650c Wabi Classic set up as a singlespeed, but didn't want to spend a lot of money just to have a dedicated lightweight SS bike. Even though this bike is not nearly as lightweight as the Wabi, it's still much lighter than my other SS bikes, and for only $169.95 it was really an easy choice for me. I do expect to ride it frequently, so it is a practical purchase IMO.

    You'll also need a longer seatpost. Mine is inserted only about 1 inch past the minimum mark.

    Hmm, that TT is 519, I'd only need a 130mm or so stem...

    Now, do I want a fixed version of this bike???

    Had an hour to kill at the co-op this afternoon as well as a set of Rhynolite fixed wheels collecting dust and some Kenda Komodos... the old Raleigh Safari is so much fun in the snow and the slack frame angles makes it really stable.

    Will probably swap in a lighter crank and bars but even with the steel bits (crank, seatpost, and bars) it is just under 25 pounds.

    Doesn't make you faster, will improve endurance though.

    Finally made another SSMTB today and rode it around tonight. Tomorrow it gets black rear triangle again and a half link. Or maybe bigger cog and whole link.

    Hey guys, fixed gear bike rider from Hong Kong. This is my second fixed. I am trying to make it as vintage as it can be.

    Day two on the Raleigh... added Nitto bullmoose bars for that old school flavour and function, upped the brakes, and added a beverage holder for my bulletproof coffee.

    It has been too long since I rode fixed in the winter... the bike is fun with a capital F.

    My not so very vintage bike. From Hong Kong.
    And the pedal strike or toe overlapping whatever it calls kills me.

    Hey 65er please tell me about that front brake setup. Reach? Is it effective?

    Some of those BMX calipers work pretty well.
