  • Shit me a thread I have not infiltrated...Ney marred.

  • I dunno, they seem ok? Not totally sure though, I use terrible brake pads and only ever wear out one rim at a time as they've only ever been on my fixed bikes. That being said if your brake track ain't a crescent your fixie ain't pressin'

  • Get BXP all the times!

  • My Langster, I’m riding 44x18 for some winter twiddling, Stronglight, Campagnolo Centaur brakes, ITM bars, Miche/Mavic Open Pro rim. Great to ride.

  • I’m riding 44x18 for some winter twiddling.

    Speaking of such, I ride a similar ratios (49/20), however what I have notice is that I don't quite sit down properly when going at a higher speed, compare to a higher gearing that enable a relaxed cadence and thus able to relax onto the saddle and handlebar.

    Do you find this to be the case?

  • You have to, as @middleofnowhere once told me, make your ankles go floppy. You can't push or resist at 66gi when thing get above 27/28mph, you have to sit down absorb the prescribed rhythm

  • 46:19 is biggest gear I generally ride.

    I find it pretty hard to 'drive' the pedals at higher cadences but riding rollers has definitely increased my ability to spin.

    214rpm is my max cadence on rollers (and I guess I must actually be 'driving' the pedals to this cadence as it cant come from descending since on the rollers), on the road I max out at 203rpm and that tends to be when descending.

    When hitting higher cadences I really concentrate non pushing my bum into the saddle and only using my legs.

    And that’s the badgers, it’s a disciple that require a bit of concentration unlike a road bike where you don’t need to concentrate to be comfortable due to coasting.

    I tell you one thing, never go down the Pyrenees on a fixed wheeler, that’s another level of pains.
