    Yeah I am afraid i am turning a little bit German by wanting to abide to ZEE GESETZ but aye, I don't want the headache of having to deal with it.

    No never afterwards. But saw in Mitte where I work on several occasions fixieskidders with only a front brake being pulled over by the fahrradpolizei and getting the same treatment.

    I just thought, whilst your at it, do it properly so not having to deal with it. But your call of course. Have never seen them in NK but I believe they're expanding the fahrradpolizei force in conjunction with developing the cycling infrastructure.

    Pics will happen in the new year, too much to do with house move and crimbo and family stuff until then.

    I am running an Alfine crank with 44t mounted on the outside spider and that gives a good chainline if of interest

    oi, lemme chip in as fellow neuköllner with a ftf thats a bleed from the trp hyrds away to be rollin´.
    (mine is a octane one kode with 135mm back end spacing, 650b 47c horizons, running 135mm surly new ultra hub with rear disc brake)

    rear brake is mandatory in zjermany and the Fahrradpolizei checks this:

    I had to pop by within two weeks at the police station and show I installed a rear brake..

    possible to do a rear disc brake with 120mm spacing, get an adapter for double sided hub for disc brake?
    or wait, its 130mm? squeeze an extra 5mm and use the aforementioned hub?

    or

    f*ck da police

    Aha. Too rich for my blood I presume, but ace forks. Copper plating sounds great.

    Uniqlo also does a JW Anderson and UUUUUUU line (by Christophe Lemaitre) which are nice. Only come out a couple times a year though and are limited.
