EDIT: New ride.
I realized the other day that it’s been a year since I’ve been riding fixed, which means that’s just an extra year on the many I’ve been riding bikes.
here’s my fuji track pro:
Aerospoke from user: hermes,
there’s crabon centaur cranks on there
cheapo alloy risers
and some selle italia seat (kickes the arse or my bonty racelite)
frame’s a bit too big for me, but when i measure it up it’s 54 (it says it’s 58, i don’t know what to beleive)
Feels good man.
I was riding this conversion for a while.
With my b43 on it, and pretty much everything that is on the fuji now.
I need to buy some more stuff to get it rollin’, but my coin keeps getting wasted on bmx shiz.
Grabbed those wheels from user: J.K.L.P and the cranks from user: sa_r
I got the frame from a guy from tradeschool. His name’s Jimmy, and he’s an upholsterer. If anyone knows him, tell him I said hi
speaking of bmx, my '86 diamondback silver streak.
Those are original tuffs, the rear from the early 80’s (before screw-on freehub)
I rode it in the open category for ‘dirty deeds urban cyclocross’. I came dead last. But I won an inappropriate bike award, and got cheered a whole lot.
here’s a pic nicked from the almighty Blakey’s flickr
whilst the pic makes me look like I’m in the lead, I’m actually about to be lapped for the fourth time by this fixie-riding character.
Getting new tuffs, tires, and gear ratio before the next race.
first ever roadie:
bought my first fixie to replace this, as I figured it’d be cheaper than replacing my dead tired suntour groupset and wheels.
I also purchased this, well over a year ago, i thought it’d make a sweet conversion.
Lots of shit has happened to it in its time, all learning experiences, and now it’s set up like a single speed cross bike, 'cept my gear ratio’s whacked, cos it’s got carbon track cranks with a 49 tooth chainring on there.
I call it the “eddy schmerckx”
The shed which it is photographed in has many more bikes.
There’s a giant warp, a bunch off old bmx’s (one of them’s an alloy Haro) and a bunch of dirt.
I could also post a pic of the bike I built for my little brother, but I don’t know if it’s appropriate to ‘post someoone else’s ride’ in the 'post your ride section.
Hope you enjoy looking/commenting/trolling
Got this for $100
Stuff’s in pretty nasty on there, don’t know if I’m gonna replace the groupset and wheels, and try riding it as a roadie, or knock up some cheap ss wheels and use it as a pub ride.
