its going to be a massive release in Decemberrommelgc;15557 said:Have been thinking of getting a fixie as a 2nd bike.
Saw your post on another thread regarding the S3X... is it already available locally?
(I'm not getting any younger, so might as well as try anything I could try my hands on)
I don't get it. Why would you need 3 gear ratios on a fixed bike? Isn't the point of riding a fixed bike simplicity? Seems like a hipster bling bling thing thing. Hipsters need to develop some quadriceps.
eh, but i am kind of guilty of bling bling
one of my fixies, a converted bridgestone radac. its not the most subtle bike ever
I used to spray the finish on those. As well as sanding and filing the joints prior to paint. They are quite light considering their age. Pretty flexy eh?
I have a Fixed gear comming (long story on why i have 3 fixed gears now) that will be for sale a 56cm
hah, yeah, i got back on my radac after i reassembled it from cannibalizing parts for the NJS, and i was like, whoa. the Geometry is way different, the bike just isnt as nimble as hte track bike. so its now my SS converted, velocity deepV wearing, commuter bike.I'm not asking for the story, because I know that if I was riding 56cm frames in Japan I couldn't resist the NJS temptation
I'm currently building up my second track bike, around an 80s GranVelo frame with measurements that make finding the right components difficult. I expect December the time when it's complete.
Usually I do interval sprints in front of the Tokyo government skyscrapers, where you have a nice circle course without heavy traffic and two ~700m stretches.
One question after the first week of riding my newly assembled road-bike: Doesn't it feel awkward for you to get back on the fixed? Or the other way around?
