This is my SS and daily commuter. Thinking of changing the bars to bullhorn to help drag it up hills.



I'd make those new bars, 'bendy' bars if I were you, looking at the rest of the frame.
Certainly never seen cycling south of Sussex

new bike to work scheme bike:  :thumbsup:

Airnimal Chameleon X set up as a fixed gear with an eno hub.

Apologies for the rubbish 'pic taken with my phone at work' pic



it now has a 105 front brake as the Veloce caliper it came with didn't have a Q/R and the front wheel is removed as part of the fold!, MKS quick detach pedals, and orange ESI bar tape as I had some in the bar tape box.

is a lovely ride - perfect for my flatish ride  to the station and across London - I'm debating riding it (slowly) on Dunwich this year...
not so much a gravel grinder.... more of a gravel groveller

Put some 'nobblies' on my fixed (35c rear and 32c front) and have been riding local gravel tracks.

Currently enjoying my All City Natureboy 853 (more so if I can get it quieter! )

Regards,

Before and after photos of a renovation I completed a few years ago.

Must get my (green) one built up...
I did, but I've only just realised that I never posted here when I had. In fact, my only contribution to this thread has been the work bike on page 1. Sadly, that encountered a motorist who wanted to try that thing where the car and the bike occupy the same space-time coordinates. As is ever the case, my bike (along with my finger) came second, although the motorist later came second in the resulting claims process.

The upshot was this, which did duty to work for a few years. It was originally branded as a Marlboro, though by this stage it had been resprayed:

These days it's looking even more dilapidated, and doing duty on my turbo. It started that still on fixed, but it's now using a PowerTap freehub with a single-speed adaptor, because that gives better results on Zwift. The non-matching forks are the result of a second motorist trying the same thing only a few months later with my replacement bike, with pretty similar results really.

And "the green one" I mentioned above and never posted. Did get used sometimes for riding to work, but these days I'm on the train to London*, so that has stopped. More often now for winter Audax and general utility and leisure riding. Also beginning to show its age, maybe I'll get a respray sometime:

Green remains, I think, my favourite among the various colours that On One have offered for this frame.

*Well I was, till Covid came along.
