  • 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...

  • Hello,

    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
