53.5cm TT, 54cm ST! :twisted:

Should be more comfortable than my Lo-Pro which had a 60cm ST and 'effective' 52cm TT lol!!!

Flip the stem, get a different brake lever (the single hood looks Naff) and get some pedals with some sort of foot retention... Clips/straps/clipless whatever.

Riding fixed is easy. I prefer riding my track bikes over my roadie.

Will do, first thing is the pedals and stem, I'll do the lever on the first service.

Took it for a ride today... Certainly different experience to the roadie! In a good way :D

Just after putting together my fixie/single-speed about a fortnight ago to take it for a midnight test ride:

Image

Image

Have only ridden it single-speed at the moment and will probably keep it this way. I have clocked up about 260km after three rides, it is so much fun all I need to think about is pedal and brake.

Changes I did from stock as I assembled it was to replace:

- the seat post (with a lay back of 45mm I just have enough saddle rail to achieve a 40mm set back position - it is the smallest bike in the range a size 47cm bike with a 75.5 degree STA)
- the saddle (the Cinelli Unicantor didn't look comfortable and I had a Specialized Romin Evo lying around meaning to replace my road saddle)
- the pedals with Speedplay zeros instead of flats, though in the picture I have the covers on them to ride them flat during testing
- in the process of getting the chain off I went too far with the pin so ended up having to shorten it by a link and a half - I have since got a new chain with a spring clip instead as I felt I didn't have enough slack in the chain
- love the bull horn bar but not fan of the Tektro brakes so replaced them with some Ultegra 6700 brakes I never got around selling. Not a fan of having to ride on the tops to access the brake levers so have got some TT bar end levers on order.

Was thinking that I would struggle with a 48-18 gearing as I want to commute to work on occasions with it but managed the riverloop with it ok. Did a ride out to Redcliffe on the weekend and really had to spin to keep up along the flats with the guys at 35-40km/h. The biggest different from my road bike is that the wheels feel like boat anchors to accelerate and keep at speed - I love the deep dished (50mm) look but the wheelset comes to total of 4.1kg (front, rear, hubs, 16t fixed cog, 18t freewheel, maxxis refuse tyres, and tubes). Am thinking of replacing them with some Velocity Deep Vs but now leaning towards some 50mm chinese carbon track wheels, perhaps f20/r24 or f24/r24 as I won't be taking them on track and at 59kg they should strong enough?

Here you go champ ^^

I don't have a story about this other than, I got hit buy a car which destroyed my Lo-Pro and Separated my Right Shoulder. After dicking around with old mate's insurance, I finally got compensated for the damages to my bike. I ran through a whole heap of build hypotheticals in my head and on calculator ($$$) and settled on building something that i've always wanted. It's my Dream bike I guess. :cool:

Had a couple of mates come around this morning and shared a few redcans while I built it (including lacing wheels), then took it for a casual 48km Loop up to Swan Valley for some Brews. First day back in the saddle after 5 weeks too due to the aforementioned injury!

Frame / Fork: 2005 Bridgestone NJS 54cm ST, 53.5cm TT
Headset: Dura Ace 7710 NJS
Stem / Bars: Nitto NJPro AA w/ Nitto RB201AA Riz0rz with Oury's (tarck) OR Nitto Pearl AA w/ Nitto B125AA with Champs (track)
Seatpost / Saddle: Nitto Crystal Fellow (NJS Post's are too short for my long legs) / Kashima MFG Turbo-81 NJS soon to be recovered
Hubs / Spokes / Rims: Dura Ace 7600 NJS / Hoshi NJS Laced 4-Cross / H+Son TB-14's wrapped in Gators - soon to be Panasela gumwalls.
Sprocket / Lockring: Dura Ace NJS 16T / Dura Ace NJS Lockring
BB / Cranks / Chainring: Dura Ace 7610 NJS Sealed BB / Dura Ace 7600 NJS / Dura Ace 7600 NJS 49T
Chain: Daido NJS
Pedals: MKS Royal Nuevo NJS / MKS NJS Alu Clips / MKS NJS Fit Alpha Double Straps
Misc: Kashimax TT Protector

(Note, saddle has been moved back, and straightened since pics were taken! I'll get some pics with drops tomoz too! Been having too much fun. feelsgoodman.jpg)

My new commute/training bike, finished last Saturday in time for the Brisbane 2 Ipswich ride.


Need to fit a black stem & seatpost for the full stealth look, the heavy wheels are ok for
training (4.1kgs) but think I've got to buy another lighter set for commuting.



Sorry about the state but it rained in Brissie both Friday & when I went for a ride yesterday,
I'll clean it tonight as I'm riding today & it'll just get dirty again.

Hi everyone
Here are my two, 'not in anyway special' fixies
The black one is my beater/commuter. I'm running both hand brakes because the front braking surface is a bit iffy at the moment and I try to use it as little as possible
The blue 'Gulf' bike is an old cyclocross bike which is why it has cantilever brakes and lots of fork/frame tire clearance
I'm currently on the look out for an old track bike to build into a new and better 'Gulf' bike
