- Where are all the fixies/singlespeed etc bikes for sale?!!!!
isnt the point that you dont BUY a SS?
you make one from old bits of bike and sellotape and wotnot
Exactly! This has the added advantage nowadays of, when you realise that not having any gears is stupid, you can then punt it on to some flat cap bedecked cockwomble, sporting a moustache like a World War one era Prussian general, for 5 times what it cost you to build, so he can go and lock it to railings outside coffee shops in the Northern QuarterPosted 4 years agothepodgeMember
I offered you mine but you never got back to me so I sold it to a student who’d had his nice one nicked.
Fixed gear has dies a bit of a death as it was quickly adopted by the hipster crowd. Everyone that I know has gone back to freewheel but maybe that’s because fixed isn’t ideal for the local area.
Also don’t you already have frame and forks from Morton?Posted 4 years ago
flange you sent pics but on reflection I didn’t think I’d pay £600 for it. I didn’t say ‘go on then’ or dibs etc. Just pics please. Why is anyone a moron? £600 is alot if you just want a mucking about commuter/pub bike.
I thought I’d bought a Genesis Day One today- seller had two Marks mixed up, not a biggy it happens. Using your scale of disproportion shouldn’t I be smashing up my pc now?Posted 4 years ago
My old SS. Tatty frame (Reynolds 525 GT Timberline) was a tenner off ebay. Nitromorsed and powder coated. New drive chain and headset. The rest built up with parts kicking about in the garage, or scrounged off mates. Total outlay £100-120-ish
Its traditional that your hack/pub bike ends up doing more miles than any of your ‘proper’ bikes. Oh… and its illegal to clean them. EVER! Thems the rules!
