  • Impressive.

    What is it?

    And pics plz?

    This is track mode:

    You will have to use your imagination but for commuting, long distance and training I put on a profile airwing (grey bar tape) with a front brake and flip the flop to a 17t (hence the too long chain in the pic)

    For TT (if I ever do one or put them back on) I have a set of clip on aero bars that go on the airwings.

  • nutsjesmoar - That is really looking good man. Only slight thing I'd say is the stem needs to be a tighter angle, i.e.-

    But thats just personal opinion.

    this is such a cool picture.
    not sure if its matt lugs, pearl blue forks or headset and stem, but it totally does it for me.

  • well almost finished now. just need the black tape. but it wont be near me till friday.
    finally gone a bit hhsb...but who cares.

  • big ring

  • very pretty.

  • ^^^^^^^I have:

    Fixed gear/ beater - for the everyday commute
    Nice steel road- training
    Nice carbon road-racing
    And Tri-bike for exactly that.

  • Jfh did you polish those rims? looks tidy

  • I was wondering what is a good place to get a cheap fixie frame set that would be good for my first ever bike build, any help would be appriciated :)

  • ebay or trawl the forum classifieds.

    Just make sure you look for track ends or horizontal/semi horizontal dropouts.

  • ^^ and don't buy anything listed as super awesome cool fixie...

  • Thank you, I shall begin my browsing :D

    something like this would be ideal, and will provide you with loads of parts to save your budget on 1st build. You'd make some money back by selling derailleurs, chainset, rear brake, bars etc and replace with your parts of preference.

  • yep that's also good. as long as its your size. may go for a bit more £ though

    I'd watch both...

  • White headset - yay or nay?

    Yay + white bartape and silver crankset.
    What frame is it?

    It's a forum members from the HHSB thread that I cropped to highlight the stem. It's a little ratish with the matt black, but I really liked it.

    A sweet build, very tight.

    4 Bikes.

    Practical -

    Crabon Roadbike
    Alu MTB

    Impractical -

    Alu Track
    Vintage Roadbike

    We all need a bit of impractical in our lives, adds fun!

    Speaks the words of experience?! ;P

    That Raleigh, if its the right size for you, is a very good idea.

  • Early days for this one - adjustments, bar tape, saddle and other bits still to be made, but I've been having way too much fun commuting on it. Looking forward to doing some longer rides in the future - I'm envisioning it as a sporty light tourer, but we'll see. Many, many thanks to 1jonnyboy and saarf for helping me get the bits together. Will update when it's all done (apols if poor quality - phone pic).

    wanna link me to the OP?

  • -Alu all day track bike
    -Steel Track Pub beater (my friends actually ride it when they come along)
    -Steel Track only bike
    -Steel Distance geared bike
    -Nice geared show bike (just looks awesome, i keep it above the couch)

    Pretty much the same here, kind of need to get that nice steel track bike though.

    Although the friends that come over don't have to ride my beater, they're comfortably on the back seat of my tandem.*

    *causes a lot of drunken fun

    didn't know it was forum owned though, proper nice build

  • Kind of think everyone that's really into track bikes should (have) own(ed) a full NJS bike at some time right?

  • Or a full UCI bike.

  • Kind of think everyone that's really into track bikes should (have) own(ed) a full NJS bike at some time right?

    only if they're blessed with a large amount of money.

  • ...or talent and a ticket to Nippon-koku.

  • ^^^^^^^ I have 5 bikes, more or less, plus 3 frames.

    Steel rat track frame hack (about to sell, decided it's a little too small)
    "sensible" fixed (Pompino with guards)
    Alu/crabon roadie
    Alu/crabon hybrid (haven't used it in ages, sitting waiting to be sold)
    Then I've got all the parts for a steel light tourer, just awaiting assembly.

    Then a charge plug frame, 60's steel frame and my old mtb frame/parts.
