youve got the rear wheel on the wrong side!

Riding SS with only one brake is dangerous(trust me I know), put on a rear brake for safety sake or man up and ride fixed.

Was riding fixed in the morning, but it kept derailing the chain, so i swapped it over to the free wheel until i can get a new rear cog as one of the teeth is bent.

Yeah, that works, white pulled the eyes in the wrong direction.
Do like the frame design 'moose. 8)

As stated before my seat post is slowly failing on me (hence why the seat is slightly down) once the new post is in it will be back to normal...

It's not just yours.

It seem every second inner city fixie has this setup.

Mine is just setup like my road bike. A lot more comfy for training.

It definitely would put a lot more weight on your hands, arms and shoulders riding with saddle pointed down like that. It wouldn't be much chop on a ride over 50km.

Swapped my fizik out for another Kashimax FiveGold NJS as I lost my original Kashimax Aero NJS saddle.

Then took a sh it picture.

Just need to get some araya 540 clinchers I think they are, and then relace the wheels for a completely Japanese build. Not really feeling the H+Son TB14's anymore.

yep. Rad.

There is an old (60+) bloke over here I see smashing around on the matching road frame with C-rec/shamals. Never has a helmet on!

Its nasty and my rushed paint has more runs than The Don but the frame is native 700c so easier to work with than my original ghetto fixie.

Its not quite as much fun as making suicide hubs out of 27" wheels but tyres were too hard to come by.

Here are some updated ones of my Larry:
Image

Switched to Tektro brake levers, running single speed while my knee heals
Image

Picked up a cheap pair of Rival cranks too, and fitted some SKS guards:
Image

Overall im really happy with it. Only niggling thing atm is the cheap crap Shimano freewheel which is dying badly. Will have to replace it, but i can't complain as it came with the wheels for $40 and the wheels are really quite nice.

The fleet is 2 single speeds and one geared now.. ooeer

Fiddles with ratios since this photo and found a magic gear so the horrible tensioner is gone.
