I’ve sold the Fixie.

I’m out. I’ve been a Hipster for a few months now and just don’t find the “Cool” factor of Fixed riding really appealing to me.

So it’s back to commuting and MTB for me.

Thanks for all the chat and advice

See Ewes around.[/b]

I have nothing to add…

Meh to you! It’s a nice build! Lupine is egging me on so pfft!

yeah yeah…every time you try to get out, they pull you back in.

I think Captain Muppet is the fixed gear benefactor. Spent big $$ setting up a nice fixed gear then get bored flog it off and start the process again. I’m not going to complain, just hope he grows a bit so I can snatch a bargian.

No not really. Just had nice wheels on a not so nice bike. I get bored with bike quickly. But, I won’t commute on the next Fixie, it’s too much hassle with the whole “cool” factor.

I have a set of Velocity Deep V for $650 - if you’re keen. Don’t need them now as I’m going for the Aero and Mavic.

Captain Muppet, you missed the most important thing when posting about Deep V’s… the colour. Isn’t that the only reason people but these boat anchor rims?

thats a damn fancy build for a surly…
