Newbie and his woodgrain fixie..

Postby GELATO » Tue Feb 28, 2012 8:36 pm

Hi guys,
I am new to the forum and wanted to make a bit of an intro. I have just finished building my woodgrain FIXIE.
I'd be keen to get some feedback, are there any other riders from around Sydney South/Metro that'd be keen for some regular rides?
This is my bike: For more pics click the link:

For those that are interested the specifications are as follows:
-Chromoly vintage bike frame;
-Diatech Dirty Harry brake levers;
-Shimano Tiagra 4600 brake callipers;
-Shimano crank set;
-Tange forks;
-Brooks seat;
-Wood stick handle bar.

I like. Why not go full wood? Audi has some wooden bikes out.

Thanks,
Ah I I like the bike to be practical and wanted it to last me a while!
I don't think I could nuture a complete wooden bike haha!
Would love to see some pictures of Audi's complete wooden bike. There is a shop in Newtown that sells a Hybrid steel and bamboo bike..But I have never seen complete wood!
