- Help me out of apathy-build a budget 'track' style commuter
I don’t need one
I have an ancient fixie for polo that cost me 30 quid from the junk shop round the corner from me and a commuter that cost me 120 from eBay
Both cheap, both perfectly good for their intended purpose
If I was to buy a dedicated commuter I’d be hunting down a disc / alfine Carrera subway from a couple of years back.Posted 5 years ago
umop3pisdn – perfect. Cranks sorted. Just needs wheels and source frame/forks/headset. (I have ultegra calipers/bmx levers/bars/post etc from previous).
I’m hesitant and getting something like an old Raleigh- partly because due to my weight I don’t want it to be too flexy.Posted 5 years agomidlifecrashesSubscriber
It’s Redox rust converter, rust eater. I lent it to my mate last year when his commuter was nicked and he painted it on the scabby bits, now it looks worse than when he started. Are you coming to the pootle on the 14th? I should be coming over from Doncaster.Posted 5 years ago
