    Why do you need track-specific stuff? Ghetto SS (adaptors on a cassette, any old cog, chain and chainring) FTW.

    A bit harsh that mrmo, Hora’s days of changing his mind every 5 minutes are well behind him.

    Have some errr yellow used track wheels from my Paddy Wagon you can have for postage. Any old square taper crank will be fine. Move the chainring to the best place for alignment.

    Maybe its making you look lazy because you are actually lazy? You lazy ****! 😀

    Have you considered having a large Trebuchet installed in the back garden, and have Lisa launch you to work in the morning? You can hobble back on your shattered and crushed, bleeding stumps!

    Anyway… what the hell are you thinking, you massive flod? You can get from your house to your office on the canal towpath, without touching the road. What are you building some gay fixie track bike for? You’re going to ride down a suicidally busy main road in rush hour, rather than get the mountain bike out and ride down a quiet towpath, where all you’ll encounter is the odd dog walker? 😯

    Sometimes your logic is ****ing stupid unfathomable! Just build yourself a singlespeed hardtail hack bike and use that. You’ve probably got enough parts kicking around in the shed to build 3

    Even I don’t think I’d bother getting the bike out for a one mile commute.

    Edit – to clarify, I’d sooner do that than drive, though.

    Nah, me neither. Walk it man 🙂

    Walking it will get you fitter to.
    I had a 1.5 mile commute once – 30 minute walk, 10 minute cycle, 15 minute car. Nearly always walked apart from when I was late or it was raining when I then cycled.

    I have a set of cranks, bb, fixed / free rear & a standard 700c front if you like.

    they’ll not be posh enough for you while also being too expensive but I could drop them off with Chris & you’d have them on sunday

    don’t go completely cheapsh1t for the cranks, get something half decent because the cheap ones just round off the square taper and fall off, or bend (really)

    I’ve seen 30quid wheelsets on ebay, they’d be ok

    Binners Everytime I go to the supermarket I eye up those electric buggies. Whats that grape-eating over-indulgiance droid on Futurama?
