Hey all,
Just received my Windsor Hour and wanted to bring this thread up to date a bit. I ordered mine in "apple green" (seems to be a new color based on the dearth of posts mentioning it), and I am loving it. Mine arrived at my door with both a 16 tooth fixed gear cog and a 16 tooth freewheel installed. At first, I was getting some noise while pedaling and feared that it was the bottom bracket, but when I switched over to the fixed cog (it came running the freewheel), the noise was gone. Keep an eye on your pedal crank bolts and rear hub cones - I've had both tightened by my local bike shop (the cranks twice). Thus far, the 48 x 16T fixed gear ratio has been treating me well with average hills and flats - you can really get this thing moving on the flats!

I had the same issue, in fact it's the reason I started riding on the fixed side in the first place. After giving everything a once-over, tightening and re-lubing, it was resolved and has been great since.

Also, posting a more recent pic of my bike because seriously, what was going on with my saddle there?

Just wanted to update with a few pictures. Everything has been holding up well. The bike feels solid and fast.
