(Have we done this before? IDK)
FOA’s been around for a while now, many of us have gone through a number of different bikes in that time.
Post a timeline! Bonus points if you owned an Evolution. No judging jackass setups from BITD, we were all n00bs once and have (hopefully) learned and moved on, instead, point and laugh.
Shame I don’t have photos of my sw8 camo fixie from when I was real young, 12" wheeled BMX, fixed, so sw8, so ahead of its time. I’m only going to post bikes I no longer own for now.
Raleigh Super Course MkII - first fixed gear conversion after reading all about ‘fixies’ on aus.bicycle and BFSSFG, makes me shudder now for so many reasons. I blame bikeforums.
Soren Son - Bought it for a song, so I traded it for a pair of rims. Was always too big. That bartape makes splash look good, to say nothing of the angles.
Kerry Hopkins - Ebayed it just as the fixie index was starting to plummet, also too long.
Somewhere around here I tried to build a shitter, bought an Apollo hybrid (700C, cantis, semi horizontals), built a NOS Torpedo Duomatic into a wheel and set it up as a flatbar. Rode it in the 2009 Roobaix IIRC (when LAM broke his arm?) SO BAD. Donated the frame, sold the wheel.
