Members Fixed Gear & SS

In the spirit of the Titanium thread, I thought it would be a nice idea to start a similar thread for fixed gear bikes.

Here is mine with a failed saddle bag experiment a saddle bag dressed for the Manchester 100. Now show us yours...

Just to break the Pearson dominance here's my 'fake*' Dawes:



Not the best photo it's now got new, blue pedals and better tyres.

*as in a chinese frame with a Dawes logo on, as the US trademark has lapsed, great ride nevertheless.

I was experimenting with handlebar positions at the time the pic was taken - it's back to normal now.  I was trying for a bullhorn emulator with the thought of cutting the drops off below the levers, but (sensibly) decided against it.

Langster frame, Ritchey, ITM and Pro bits, Sugino chainset, handbuilt wheels with CXP33 rims on Goldtech hubs.  70".

There's enough Fixed riders in the Midlands & adjacent areas for a YACF ride a la Regulator's Fenland  affair.
It needs to be somewhere flat.
The Fylde area perhaps. :demon:

My Bowery. A few bits changed from standard: ITM Black Stream forks, chopped 'n' flipped bars, Tiagra crank with Thorn chainring, and the Halo Twin Rail tyres. And of course the hundreds of stickers. Just needs a white saddle then I'll stop spending money on it until I can afford new wheels.

I'm not sure I have a picture of them all...

But Jacques is one I really like. A lot!



Currently equipped with a nominal 81'' gear for the summer, Omnium 165mm track cranks, Flite SLR saddle and some of the best TT bars on offer in that price bracket, Profile T2+. Jacques was originally built by a small builder for Orbit 16 years ago but customised for me by Mercian. It feels (is) fast, can climb well, but is not the most comfortable bike for long rides (Stiff, you said? And responsive? Yes. And yes it is a steelie. I have done 180 km on it though). It is worth noting that Mercian made it a bit less aggressive.  ;D

My Langster is a favourite for fast, year round road rides and commutes; it is a superb package for the money, light and stiff; a real pleasure to ride. The Pompino is a nice workhorse (a cruiser) for smooth distance riding and year round commuting; takes full guards and a rack, and fat tyres (28mm).

I've shown mine before too (and it's got new bars/stem, saddle and SPDs as well since), but here's my work hack:

The Goff'ner. 653 Reynolds frame, DA hubs with CXP30 rims, Sugino 75 crank, ring & BB and EAI superstars (15 & 18 for track and road respectively).
Nitto Bullhorns for the road and B123a's for the track.

This was built around having one bike and one bike only, but with all the mountains around here, a road bike is probably on the list for next season.

Woo Hoo! Gratuitous piccies of Gordy's four one-gear bikes! Forgive me for including two photos of each machine?

This is the "best" bike, a 2003 Longstaff custom built fixed wheel:
(I've fitted a nicer stem and bars since the photo was taken.)



This is the same bike (2005) , in its original colours:



This is the "proper" tourer, a Surly CrossCheck:



The same bike, in action:



This is the SS hack, originally a Ridgeback Meteor hybrid, but continually being changed.
(It now has swept back handlebars)



The same bike, an action.



And this, I think, is unique, a singlespeed, two wheel drive, 2007 Longstaff tricycle:
(It has nicer bars now.)



And loaded up:



(Apologies to everyone who just wanted clean, stripped down SS and fixed.  :-[)
