Courtesy of Brown Jersey. Yes I'm more than seriously considering them when I get a better FG. They look amazing, not to mention that the ring shape reminds me of something...


Nah, I meant like HLCs example;

Whilst I like the old style fluted arms, I think so many knock offs in the decades since they've first appered, the look at least has kind of been cheapened a little bit. The latest generation just has classy lines I think that haven't been equalled. Dura-Ace pista only really comes close I think.

But then again... maybe it depends on the frame they're matched to :D

Sugino 75's are right up there too!!! But maybe that's because they look like Dura Ace 7400 ha ha!

Gee, those welds look a little agricultural for such an expensive frame. would have expected a smooth finish on a fashion branded bike like this.

I have a Bridgestone NJS Track/Keirin bike which I have set up with drops/clipless etc. This bike is purely for hektik whipskidz and sweet fixie riding (pub runs/shopping etc) ha ha. I'll probably take it to the track and put it through it's paces one day!

No probs Henri, gotta keep the lady-friend happy. Seeing Dan's Planet X go by on a weekly basis makes me want one of these. And want the time to ride one...

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

Say What..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 ;)

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