Naaaaaaww.. you should get some pics with him riding on it to save for his 21st. Start 'em young I reckon. Kids should be able to swim and cycle even before they can walk. :wink:

Nice bike greeny23, you'd be spinning out down hills with that gear ratio though?

I had a Globe Roll 01 - not a bad ride, although the bottom bracket was quite low, resulting in frequent pedal strike. Also the wheelset was shite so I replaced. Since sold the bike.


haha awesome :) I did not see any polo crew though. Saw a few sexy bicycles on my way home though.

my dads old Raleigh, found it in the garage, he bought it back in 70's and it hadn't been touched in about 20-30 years. spent $190 odd bucks and it came up a treat.

something wrong with the back tyre in that shot!!!! It's bulging off the rim at the rear.

Anyway, classic frame and paintjob is that. Sort the bars angle and tape them, and even consider a modern saddle and seatpost.

it's just a superfantastic white wall job. only the paint not the actual tyre. just got the bracket crank and wheels done. slowly doing the rest.
was thinking a brooks seat with leather grips, and a light alloy seat post

Picked this up today, Avanti Pro Lite track bike frame with Halo wheelset, carbon cranks and forks, I've added a new brake set (it only had fronts and it was a single not fixie?).
Sorry about the taped brake cable, where are my cable ties?!

Looks good, very bright lol. Maybe shorten your rear brake cable housing when you get some zip ties too.

Thanks Pete, it is very bright, the picture doesn't really do the brightness justice!
Yep the cables were oldies I had, off to get new ones and much shorter when I fix them properly!

Don't know what the frame is, got it from a mate who had it sanded and done a dodgy rattle job on before deciding it was too big for him. (58cm) Don't think frame is anything special unfortunately, but came up great once powder coated.

I converted an old Repco Olympic 12 to a fixed gear a little while back.

Started off with this...

Home paint job, reupholstered saddle and hand made saddle bag.Full story can be found here...http://www.bicycles.net.au/forums/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=45494

Have been riding it for a good few months now and love it. Just have to make some leather grip tape and she's complete.

Nice bike build christianeh, great photos too.
I like the setting for the photos. I read somewhere, "there is beauty in decay", you have caught it pretty well in those photos.

So after I (and my green Lo-Pro Pursuit Bike) got cleaned up by a car a couple of weeks ago, I finally decided on and purchased a new frame...
