  • sorry :( only been singlespeeding a year and fixed for 4 weeks...

    What fixed are you ridin'?

  • 1950 Claud Butler frame / forks with modern stuff added.

    Have a look here - http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtop­ic.php?t=142580

    Dryish weather only though which means im going to have to convert my daily ride as well :)) as fixed has proved to be highly addictive!

  • Always happy to stop and talk bikes...im based just outside Nuneaton so tend to head northish into leicestershire..market bosworth etc. Ill let you know about Burton trip.

  • I live between Nuneaton & Cov.
    Been to Hinckley no end of times on fixed.
    Have done Leicester fixed, would Burton be doable fixed?

  • If youve done Leicester then Burton would be quite easy distance wise..one down side... any way into Burton from this side is a biggish downhill. I'll go in on the A50 across the old bridge. Its a big down hill with lights at the bottom. Not done it fixed. If youre brakeless have your soles lined with grey compound Kool stop :) but im only a newbie!!!

  • Burton (and Derby) very doable fixed. #homesick

  • where are you now?

  • Manchester, Derby still doable, but not fixed. BoT and Cov a bit too far really.

    Why did you relocate, work related?

    Pretty confident skidding and stopping was think more 'bout distance and terrain.

    work & romance, slushy innit.

    Once you get over the A5 its pretty fantastic cycling country...lots of green and rolling hills
