Spin, Spin. It's actually a nice looking conversion to my eye. Geometry would make it a cruisy comfy ride no doubt. Trippy looking TT.


Doing the Sydney to Gong on it next month so need some gearing. I have done twice before with 39-16 and spun out too much on the flat.

I think they did the top tube so you can a u lock

This is actually kind of cool - MIXTE like with a bit more Testosterone

Built this for my GF a few weeks ago...

Campagnolo Shamal Track Clincher Wheelset, Campy Pedals, Dura Ace Cranks, BB and other bits...

Image


Anyway, it was too big, which is why we had it set up as a townie.

I bought another Bike her size, swapped all the bits over. Fits her a lot better, and now I have a Hillman Roadie and her a Hillman Track. We will Strip it down completely for a lick of paint thats a little more female friendly and grab some new decals off Hillman.

Rad.

Hopefully once she's used to riding fixed from SS i'll get her out on the track. With some drops of course.

Project finished

Postby rtnicho » Fri Oct 19, 2012 7:59 pm

Many thanks to all who helped with this project.
Specs
Tange 2 frame in British racing green
Wheels Open Pro with Origin 8 hubs & DT spokes (velomine)
Panaracer Pasella tyres
Campag veloce calipers with Diacompe inverse levers (works incredibly well)
Jagwire cables
UN 54 BB with shimano sumthingorother crank
48 x 16 = perfect for Adelaide
It's my first experience with fixed gear and it goes like a dream. Chainline dead straight on putting it together (far more good luck than good management).

Tasteful conversion, but then all your bikes are nicely finished. :wink:

Thanks v2
Still got the Pursuit. Very under-ridden though. Every time I think about selling it I take it for a ride and really like how it handles and end up keeping it. Also I'd hate to see it chopped for a fixie. As you know it's getting harder and harder to find old steelies, particularly ones that have seen so little use.

Picked up this ugly duckling for a general purpose street fixed. Got it on a model runout sale for less than the cost of building something from purchased and used parts in the bin. been awhile since I had a brand newie anyway. Definitely function over form, with this beast. Despite it's wacky looks it's a very comfy and enjoyable ride. Stripped all the decals from the wheels, fitted a better saddle and post, removed the rear brake.

I like the Paddy Wagon. When I was looking in 2008 it was between that and the Felt Dispatch. I bought the Felt and the frame broke within 18 months.

I should have bought the Kona :(

Yeah, the Kona is butted cromo , so should be utilitarian tough. The sloping TT is not to my liking aesthetically , but the ride is really quite good. At least it doesn't have a unicrown fork, I hate those things. I had an 09 Bowery from new some years back and this thing poops all over it for ride quality, and at 9.6kg for it's size it's not a heavy old pig like a lot of the Plain gauge internet specials. Spec of parts is Ok for the coin, and can be upgraded as it wears. Took it for a run on my usual commute route today to see if it suits. The 42/16 saw me spinning a little too much on the way in, but was spot on for the elevated ride home. May change to a 15 on the rear yet and see if it's any better.

Here's my ride

Not everyone will like the frame as it's a Potential Of Hydrogen PH01 but to me I like it...for a first bike to own it is great for me...as it's something that I can use to learn off in terms of parts and maint...

A lot of the original parts from the PH01 are now gone and been replaced, still going to do a few more things to it before I move on to building my own "Proper" bike...

Well here it is hanging on a bike stand at work...

Wow, that's one tight rear end Brian, how long are those chainstays? Triple triangle frame always catch my eye.

Now, onto the brake. Who set it up with the QR open? :?

Hey i can see the bikes, the photography's good enough :) . When you have a spare hour or 10 just have a trawl through this thread and the bike gallery thread and you'll soon get an idea of the ingredients for a nice pic.

The Felt is my pick, especially the neat little saddle bag, looks cool.
