Since @Eamesy sullied the fixed-road thread, why not have the fixed-offroad thread the masses have been pining for?
Their lovely example:
My overposted Dolan:
Brief: fixed gear bike intended for use off-road, obviously
Any excuse to post my bike!
bike radar is all over it
Bit of history: http://www.63xc.com/
not to be confused with 63 fixed.
Old one of mine
23mm, but ridden this a fair bit off road.
Was actually thinking we needed this thread!
Stem and bar id on that. Looks lovely.
@Eingangs old Orlo
Stem looks like a syntace 25.4mm clamp stem. Lovely stems, would recommend!
I can get behind this thread...
So no rules about handlebars and pedals in here then?
I've been running an alternate rear wheel with a more skid friendly tyre on this lately but put it back to full gravel mode for a photoshoot the other day.
Stripped it down as soon as I got home from that and have now painted it. The effect is a bit inconsistent but I’m happy with the results...
Niiiiice! I think the inconsistency actually looks really cool and adds to it.
I need to do cracklepaint. Was this Montana @M_V?
love a tonic
Yeah, fluro gleaming pink base, from the Gold range then the Gentian blue over the top.
I think being heavy handed with the crackle stuff makes for the biggest cracks/most noticeable effect.
The low pressure thing with the gold paints makes it kinda difficult to work with. Would probably try a white range paint as the base next time.
I got frame and forks out of the pink and it's done but there's plenty more of the crackle stuff left.
Cheers. I'm pretty happy with it. It's maybe more interesting coz its not consistent?
Trek hybrid thing with CX disc fork, hydraulic brake, 38c GKs. Built up for riding the jurassic coast/BITW last year but mostly used as a pub bike now..
Cool. What is it?
