    As much as i enjoy mountain biking i am seriousley tempted by an SS/fixie bike

    If i ever get another job i presume i’ll be cycling to work (looking more and more like the car will have to go) and i really fancy something like this

    I know i shouldn’t, but i can’t help myself (and not because i’m trying to follow some trend, i’ve always loved these bikes simple lines)

    I’d say when it comes to choosing your bike, never apologise, never explain. Who wants to ride a bike based on what other people think you should be riding?! Go get it and enjoy the summer 😀

    Looks like a giant’s been borrowing a dwarf’s bike.

    That’s a great setup for anyone who likes to keep an eye on the wear rate of their front tyre.

    DJ1: “a’s roight, Anywayz, ee sez ‘ ere mate, giz a go in your privy and I’ll give you fifty quid, looked roight desparate ee did.”
    DJ2: “Fifty quid? Bloody city folk, pay anything for any old crap ‘ey’ll”
    DJ1: “Well that’s what I fort, innit? So I sez seventy five like, and we’ll say no more about it”
    DJ2: “Proper job, that. So what are we gonna do with all this scaffolding and that stem you ran into a wall last week then?”

    Now I like fixies,and road bikes and while that bike has a lot going for it, it just gets crazy at the front. The front wheel is about three feet in front of the rider so it’ll steer like a barge and to counteract that they’ve stuck a crazy assed stem on it to try and make it feel normal, which it won’t.

    It won’t matter too much mind because it’s got no brakes so shortly after hitching a leg over it, the usual target rider will be dead.
