Yeah.. Due to a neck injury riding for more than an hour causes too much pain. So rather than give up cycling entirely I use the fixie for short rides.

Congru on finding the magic! Sort of like strike gold caz it looks even cleaner than traditional horizontal dropout.

Don't be hat in'

I've just been blessed with long limbs and good flexibility! It will get set up for track tomorrow as i'm going to run this at RAW now that I have some new track wheels! I;ll save the Bridgestone for summer series where it is more casual/less competitive!

Those last two make me smile!

HLC, sorry to ask but is that PX frame drilled for brakes?

Took it to track last night with my new wheels actually. Many smiles were had!

Nope. I do have a matching Planet X time-trial fork which is drilled, but apart from setting it up to cut the steerer, i never used it.










Anyway, i bought some track wheels, so this is now set up for RAW, probably belongs in the track phot thread, but whatever.
