Dropped in to Herne Hill on Saturday afternoon for a beer (me) and ice cream (4yr old son) and there was some fixie crit going on called Fixed Beers. Didn't know a single person there.
Fixed is alive and well. It's just for young'uns.
Looking to claim my kudos points now...
Here is my mum time trialing on said Claud Butler...
(see posts #236 & #241)
From Kudos points to woah points.
Cool picture, is that a bell on the brake lever? Also looks like a suicide hub type of setup or single speed?
I think the bell may be at the end of the left drop. If you zoom in, the right break continues in front of the bell.
@lynx not sure if that's good or not, but thanks...
@Squaredisk Thanks! I have no idea what a suicide hub is, but the bike was always fixed single speed then and still was when I had it years later.
@itsbruce Dead right, but it is very confusing at first sight, I have seen other pictures so could work it out easily. Also have a pic of her sister with the same arrangement.
I have pinched my mums photo album so I could share other pics if there's any interest, but not sure this is the thread for it...
post them over in the pre 50's thread, should be interest there https://www.lfgss.com/conversations/238801/?offset=4225#comment16168185
