  • Are you still couriering and if so how are you still alive?

  • I retired from that game almost a year ago, although, living in London, Im getting the bug for it again.

  • I left too, think Steve @CasaSteve the nearest remaining?

  • yup Coventry has definitely turned into the mountain bike capital of the west Midlands. Guess I'm gonna have to stick to my weekend cycles in London

  • Coventry has definitely turned into the mountain bike capital of the west Midlands

    Thought that was Cannock?

  • Haha true enough they have their cannock Chase but most riders don't live there. we unfortunately drew probably the shortest of the shortest straws for that

  • If it was Northumberland it would be Chevy Chase.

  • Shouts out to the guy with the forest green leader 725 I passed racing to lectures on campus...restoring my faith that Fixed Gear in Coventry isn't dead.

  • HAHA just seen that same black fixie with brown tape and charge saddle. Good to know its alive and well a year later

  • Nice one!

    I have had mine for 10 years now, although it was converted to fixed around 5 years ago.

  • I tried my hand at converting an old Raleigh 5 speed racer last week for a friend who destroyed the gearing, between trying to get the chain tension right on the rear dropouts and spoking the rear wheel I gave up.

    Conversions are beauts though,bringing old gals to life

  • Fixed gear certainly isn't dead , maybe dying but there is a few of us left.

  • I saw this today, looks familiar, probably saw it s few times.

  • Completely agree, I ride a converted Raleigh Routier.

    I just wish I had more free time (and money) to restore the bike frames sitting in my garage!

  • Saw this weeks ago, didn't get around to adding at the time.

  • Haha sounds like you got yourself a future gold mine , the country needs more classics 😉 haha they remind us that soul can't be swapped out for weight reduction

  • 18 days ago? Damn. Nuneaton/Bedworth scene is being held down by me and my six pals.

  • Nuneaton/Bedworth scene

    Sweet, nice riding in the lanes out towards Market Bosworth from there.

  • I saw this last night outside Wilkinsons.

  • I saw this in the upper precinct today...or last night now.

  • Technically I wouldn't call these a 'spot'. You can get that type of shit from Argos or Tescos these days. There's little thought or effort gone into it.

  • How not to fixie.

  • May be a poor person's pride and joy that they saved hard for.

  • Where abouts in cov are you guys riding from, I'm a stones throw from the uni so would be on riding once I get my rear wheel to corporate (flipping tubular -_-)
