So, I'm moving to Liverpool next month. Does anyone still ride fixed there, or am I going to be skidding all alone?
i think it's more or less dead, but there is couple of riders who are out sometimes
I've been here for a month now. Ive seen one fixie rider apart from myself but he didn't seem to into it. Give me a shout if you get lonely bro
PMed you, if you're still around...
Why would riding fixed suddenly go out? Just curious...
Does everyone want to be Chris Froome now or something?
I ride both road and fixed
If you fancy a spin drop me a p.m and will sort it out, open invite to anyone in and around Liverpool, cheers Jim
Ive just got back from work on my single speed. I work in the main hospital in the city and always looks at the bike racks in the hospital and the university next door- about maybe one in ten-ish bikes has just the one cog. So there are loads of us in the city - P
Yeah commute out to Kirkby and see two blokes on fixed gears, one on a titanium thing, one on a langster which he has resprayed in a nice grey, plenty about just don't think anyone's really that interested in the social thing round here
See plenty dotted about town, especially over the baltic triangle. Even seen a few around my way in Knowsley but that might be down to the velodrome
Wondering if I've passed you, what do you rise? Normally on the A580 by the copper pot around 6.45a.m and 5. 30p.m, be good to see a friendly face on my commute
Jimmythegrin, I pass "The COPPERPOT" from "The SHOWCASE" most mornings (Mon to Fri) between 0645-0700 (depending on the amount of alcohol consumed the previous night) before breaking right towards Huyton. The return (depends on the weather) at about 1615-1645. Gunmetal On-One Pompino. Give me a wave. I'll be the one gasping for breath.
Not Liverpool but shitport.
Normally out towards parbold/eccleston/burscough on my trying to be less fat training loop.
Back on fixed after few years of surgeries. Riding a black se draft light
Ha, both going same direction at around the same time, I get on at the suites hotel junction to copper pot coming from valley Rd, I'll keep eye out, I'm on a gunmetal pre cursa, nice one gives me hope
Shitport, is that Southport, originally from Crossens and glad don't live there no more, don't really get out on train/leisure rides, two kids, bills house needs sorting etc, sometimes blast through Formby /Ainsdale nature reserve for fun, keep my eyes out, hopefully see you out there mate
That must of been you down ribblers, only spotted the bike as you past, will wave next time mate, I got a puncture :-(
Yeah, got it in 1 😂
I'm only here cos my kids are. Can you tell I'm not keen on the place.
I got wrecked in a motorbike crash, the riding is basically rebuilding myself after the ops.
Grew up ripping formby woods on anything with wheels.
You won't miss me, 20st with a massive beard 🖒
Still out here shreddin
Where is good to eat in Liverpool? Cheap but decent quality...
Egg cafe , its the go to place just not on your bike where ryde will feed you if you are . Or the place on exchange street round the side of moorfields station.

They certainly are. But not so much in lockdown.
