Here is my new commuter sans brakes, I have some TT levers and a WI freewheel on the ready but I am enjoying a bit of fixed fun over the weekend.

Done your first down hill without brakes yet? That's always an eye-opener.

It's a really nice bike, very time I see a nice NJS example it rekindles a flame to do a build myself at some stage.

It;s a KMC Kool chain. I have used, not really a fan. But a chain is a chain.

"hipster territory"? pffft, it's got brakes, and where are the fluoro pink Ourys and Aerospok? :lol:


Seriously though, nice looking bike :) .

Just finished my latest singlespeed build. 1988 Gold Coaster (aka old ten speed clunker) frame, powdercoated in "the glossiest black you've got" :) .
Super squishy 700x38s, running 52-16 gear. I'm really liking the bar tape instead of normal flatbar grips too.

Finally built the rest of my bikes up 5 weeks after moving.

Put a TT set-up on my planet X as I've never used one before. Felt alright up and down the street, see how it goes on a longer ride tomorrow. Need to find some bar plugs so I can ditch the brake levers. Also, i need to buy a black tyre to get rid of that awful pink thing.

Also found some damage on the NDS crank arm on my Bridgestone from the move, where something in the box moved and rubbed its way through the protective bubble wrap and rubbed a nice gouge in the crank.

If anyone has a near mint Dura Ace 7600 NDS crank arm, i'm your man.
