    In 1988 I was on a group ride around Guildford and this old geezer with a beard tried to convince us that suspension was the future. How we laughed.

    I’d forgotten about 63xc.com. Always wondered what it would be like to ride a fixed wheel mtb!

    My karate monkey spends some of its time fixed wheel. It’s interesting and difficult on technical stuff and very pleasant on smooth fireroads. The biggest issue I have is throwing chains through chainstay flex when braking hard. My kaffenback has the same issue sadly.

    ‘Orrible. 🙂

    Well that’s my experience of riding a fixed CX bike on a mtb track, rather than a proper mtb.

    It is however exhilarating and great fun, but my abiding memory is terror. To be fair it was the wrong bike for the job, and I’m long out of practice at riding fixed.

    Yep, that’s the one!

    Nothing like not being able to stop pedaling to make a tame trail a little livelier!
