    I got a FIXing for a flashback...

    Been wanting to build up a fixie now for quite a while... I figured, "hey why not use that old red Colnago?"

    Started as frame/fork with all vintage campy record? Stripped it of the goods, but left the headset, BB/cranks, stem, and seatpost. Used an old front wheel I had lying around, went to the shop and bought a new cheapy machinebuilt fixie wheel (wasn't sure whether I'd like riding fixed or not, hence the cheap wheel). And starting rebuilding/building it up! Been riding it for a while now, and I LOVE it. The two pics against a tree are from the 25 mile loop I went on today. Fun times

    Enjoy...

    read KNOBBY MEATS or be sadly ignorant of the mediocrity that is allowed to exist in the interwebs

    Thanks. I'm lucky enough that my dad was involved in the early development of mountain biking as me know it (80's & 90's) and have TONS of cool old stuff to play around with. But I still enjoy the new stuff too... But I have a real sweet-spot for old lugged steel... especially road
