Unsure about the CX lever for brakes on this iteration. Think i might go get some basic aero hoods and use those instead.

WT?..is up with your saddle angle?. You can't be comfortable at that extreme.

Haha, at that angle it wasnt particularly comfortable. But I hadnt adjusted it at that point, bars are now rotated up slightly to make the forward part of the drop more comfortable, and the seat is much more level.

First rule of taking Fixie Piccsies is adjust your saddle angle first, lest some wag come along and give you crap about it :D

Haha, was well after midnight by that stage.
Planning on taking some decent pictures soon, rather than crappy phone camera pics up against the race car.

Hey takai my Black Larry frame arrived yesterday it's good to see an example of one built up, it's a really nice frame IMO.

I am building some wheels and still deliberating on gear so you won't see a pic of mine for a while ;)

Ah, i ride with SPDs. Those pedals are dual sided, SPD one side flats the other. Anything other than a 600m blat to the shops and ill be in my SPD shoes.

Also waiting on my one of these: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/sol ... de-of-your which will be good for the quick blats to the shops.

Brilliant design, now they just need to make it in silver/steel/chrome/whatever, black won't match my retro rides.

youve got the rear wheel on the wrong side!

Riding SS with only one brake is dangerous(trust me I know), put on a rear brake for safety sake or man up and ride fixed.

Was riding fixed in the morning, but it kept derailing the chain, so i swapped it over to the free wheel until i can get a new rear cog as one of the teeth is bent.

Yeah, that works, white pulled the eyes in the wrong direction.
Do like the frame design 'moose. 8)

As stated before my seat post is slowly failing on me (hence why the seat is slightly down) once the new post is in it will be back to normal...

It's not just yours.

It seem every second inner city fixie has this setup.

Mine is just setup like my road bike. A lot more comfy for training.

It definitely would put a lot more weight on your hands, arms and shoulders riding with saddle pointed down like that. It wouldn't be much chop on a ride over 50km.

Swapped my fizik out for another Kashimax FiveGold NJS as I lost my original Kashimax Aero NJS saddle.

Then took a sh it picture.

Just need to get some araya 540 clinchers I think they are, and then relace the wheels for a completely Japanese build. Not really feeling the H+Son TB14's anymore.
