  • Got a picture of my old Mercian but don't know how to attach it. Only thinking about this other one as something to ride around the park with Mrs. sco77. I can do some maintanence and hopefully keep it going untill I can get my baby back.

  • yeeeeeh
    hi all i'm back from the tour but i had no time to go to check shops and places... so i just spotted a lot of bikes and asked infos to a guy with a red bike in camden town... but really i was in hurry so i had time only to drink thousands London Pride and Pedigree... hope to come back soon and stay longer to get in touch with somebody and hang out.
    i believe in the roof dog.

    cheers

  • hi im chris

    been riding ss for a while and I know my way round a bike but I joined up cos recently I've been upgrading parts and found my knowledge lacking in some areas

    anyway seems like a good forum

    maybe ill come to one of the south east drinks when I get a bit more knowledgeable

  • hi im Sion,

    since sniffing around on here over the last couple of days ive:
    a) Managed to not make the mistake fo buying unipack, and
    b) Managed to relieve my old man of his old harry quinn pride and joy (lots of gears and such on the moment....hopefully all to change soon)

    will get some picks once ive finally managed to get it out of his front door

  • I'm sure after 23 pages you're all bored of introduction posts, so I apologise but here's another.

    My name's Chris, 26, blew into Nottingham a few months back, saving pennies for a bike

  • Anyone who takes their name from a Smiths song is welcome here.

  • Hello All,

    I thought I would take the plunge & say hi as I would like to pop down to the east end drinks one of these weeks and thought I should at least be a member. I have been lurking for a while now......

    I never would have thought that I would have spent quite so many hours reading the ramblings of a group of strangers who are, in most cases, linked by nothing other than their fascination with bike with no gears. Random. Thanks to you all, some of this stuff is hilarious (particularly the Specialized sponsorship, genius) Really useful of course too.

    I have had a Fuji Track for about 3 months. Do a relatively short 8/10 miles round trip to work (rain or shine) plus occasional w/end adventures. I am not going to go all Hipster on Y'all but I have put on some cut down risers, need a new saddle (ugly) and am considering lowering the gears a touch. I can almost hear the cries of HTFU as I type!

    I feel better have got that of my chest

    Cheers

  • Will, do you reel around the fountain?

  • Only if you slap me on the patio

  • oops! i need reminding ebay and beer don't mix.

    'Fess up, what did you buy?

  • I tink you can all guess.
    One of them cheapo £149 quid things ( black and white).
    just done 10 miles on it and nothing has fallen off.

  • .........the bottom bracket sounds and feels like sand was used as a lube when it was put together and the headset had an extra loose bearing causing a nasty notchy feel.

  • See new thread

    My first bike had a similar gear to the standard Fuji Track, around 81" and while it fricking flew when you got it going, it wasn't ideal for riding around town. I've now got about a 72" gear on my every day bike and 65" on my trick bike.

    I'd definitely change the gear if I were you.

  • Hello my name is Maksim. I have a bike that I am restoring and want to make into a fixed gear. I am trying to collect all the parts and knowledge before I return to Poland.

    The bike currently isn't very good, I am making it look better 1st whilst riding it a lot to increase my fitness. Once I have completed making it look better, less rust and things, better wheels and tyres I hope I will have all the parts I need for the conversion.

    Thank you for your time.

    Maks.

  • Oh yes I forgot to mention that I'm not polish. My father is English, my mother is Russian and I work as an English teacher in Poland.

  • Where in Poland?

  • Silesia Region. Having just searched the site though it appears that my bike is not able to be converted.

  • Just wondering if there's any fixies in the harrow/watford area? (new too all this)

    Welcome Mikey. If only everyone's first post was as thought out as this, then the world would be a better place.

    BTW what colour do you think I should paint my kitchen, oh and how short do you think my taps should be.

    As I said, welcome and see you at drinks soon.

  • Hi all, I'm new here too. just registered.

    Been riding fixed for about 12-18 months now in birmingham. i got my frame for £5 (an old claude bultler road frame) which i got powdercoated. its a sweet sweet ride.
