@Supermac where are you based?
lovely ride ^
Hello, anyone here? :)
Hey how's it going? I'm pretty new to the site and just having a look round.
It doesn't look like there is much going on in the Birmingham section? Pretty much the same story as on the streets it seems lol
I'm good, thanks. How about you? Where are you in Birmingham?
I'm newish too, and nothing has happened in this section since I moved to Birmingham a couple of years back. There are a quite a few old-school road clubs here, a bike polo group (https://birminghambikepolo.co.uk/), and a few more socially-oriented groups (https://bicycleadventureclub.co.uk/, https://www.facebook.com/CycleBirmingham). If there's a cool fixie scene, I'm to old/unhip/fixie-less to know about it!
Thanks for the links
I live in Stirchley, we've a couple of bike shops round here and a cool road cycling club / coffee house / repair shop in Gorilla - Kings Heath https://www.gorillacoffee.co.uk/
But yeah, you're right. I don't see anyone in Birmingham riding a fixed gear, i've been a bit of a lone wolf for a while now when it comes to that.
Birmingham Bike Foundry in Stirchley is great - I used their Thursday night Tool Club quite often before coronavirus hit.
I've been meaning to get to Gorilla Coffee for a while. Thanks for the reminder!
I sold my old single-speed Peugeot at the start of the year and I've been kicking myself ever since. I see a few people commuting on single speeds, and I'm always a bit envious. Then I change gear and the envy melts away.
@OrkneyDullard @deshstar search birminghamfixedgear on instagram!

any you guys ride sscx or cross?
Once or twice, back in the day. Now, my knees and/or lungs would explode.

Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
