I don't live in London...
Yeh, shame I grew out of it!
Here is my mum doing time trial (I've posted these pics before on a different thread)
I’m 63 and the year before last started to regularly used fixed again having only done it intermittently for a long time. To start with I used an old Roberts my dad converted to fixed 44x18 (about 64 inches). I was using this to ride with my partner who just started to ride regularly and as I’m much fitter it somehow gave me a bit more fun and a slightly better work out. Then I bought a Super Pista for summer use with 48x17 (about 74 inches). Usually I used gears when doing longer rides on my own and have got good at swapping between without problems.
Last year I did some evening time trials for the 1st time in over 30 years and used the Super Pista on some of the 10 and 15 mile tests. I did my fastest time on it despite being slower on the downhill bits and it being under geared for the courses.
I’ll just add that I 1st rode fixed as a teenager doing a paper round on my mum’s old Claud Butler.
I know this is a bit of a long shot, but I’m looking to swap my Shimano Ultegra Groupset for an equivalent Campagnolo 11 speed groupset.
