Er, I’m in the process of turning my old fixie into a SS cross bike (yes, I know – nichecore to the max).
I’ve recently bought:
*FSA Vero drop bars
*Stem – cheaop from Decathlon
*Tyres – 2 x pairs (Schwalbe CX Pro + cheap Smallblock 8s)
*SS chainring in 40t and 130bcd fitting – thanks SJS Cycles!
*quill to ahead stem adaptor (Spa Cycles – useful for such trinkets)
Not exactly glamorous, I know, but still a good hundred quid’s worth….Posted 7 years agoTiger6791Subscriber
Well since STW forum bivvy ride Dec 4th / 5th from Machynlleth. I have suffered serious ‘gear envy’.
Not something I’m too bad with normally but after gaffer tapeing a bit of foam mat onto my Karrimat I went and bought one of these :
And since I got the ‘p’ taken out of me for having 2nd hand jacket that leaked. I treated myself to one of these.
