Also had to cut some of the frame for the rear wheel to fit.


Can't see that being a problem :shock:
And the wooden sprocket attachment set up is wacky.

:D :D

But then again, there's a fair portion of bikes on FGG you wonder just how much they actually get ridden; whether they're dangerous bodges or just over-pimped carpet princesses.

Fix geared bike ? Is that any different to a fixed gear bike ?

I never thought I'd see self tappers, and hex ones at that, used on a bike .....
