- Buying one of those trendy fixed gear bikey things.
I, for the first time, had a quick blast of friends fixed gear urban, trendy, dash around the city with handlebar moustache and checked shirt, skinny fit jeans bikes the other day. Despite shaking my head in disgust at my friends fashion choices I did surprisingly enjoy riding his bike. I also found the beautiful simplicity of it appealing and his enthusiasm for the nuances of fixed gear cycles a little bit infectious.
So, now I want one and I don’t know where to start. Any experts in?Posted 5 years agofervouredimageMember
Does anyone know how I can convert my double glazing to single pane. They are fine at the moment I just want to make them worse.
I’m not replacing my bikes for a fixie, I’m simply adding one to my collection. It was just fun, a bit different. No harm done surely?Posted 5 years agoTiRedMember
Something vintage and light. Most modern fixies are made of lead alloy 🙄 . If you must have new, I’d go for a Specialized Langster or Kona Paddy Wagon. Paddy Wagon has sealed bearings and mine runs beautifully despite minimal maintenance and a whole winter of commuting.

I am likely to have one for sale 2nd hand very soon.
Chas Bland 1970’s track frame made in Bristol, resprayed blue about 5 years ago and has been a good commuter / town bike for that same time.
Reasonable finishing kit.
No photos at present but I’ll do some soon. £150. Interested?Posted 5 years ago
