    Awesome bike, you guys have some balls riding with a fixie off-road like that I have the same bike (but with coasting ability), and was wondering how much yours weighs with the upgrades??

    19 lbs!! Nice!! I'm hoping to get mine down to sub-20, but not sure if I can with two brakes and not a whole lot of money

    Here is a cheap Nashbar fame I rode fixed for awhile. I think I've heard it referred to as a "Southpaw fixie". I called it a really inexpensive tandem crank and something different. I broke the drive side chainstay early this winter, replaced it with a Origin8 Spy frame and swapped on a different crankset.

    Here is the Bonty that started it all for me as far as fixies off road. Finally found a use for my old 26" bike:-)

    Not technically a mountain bike...

    Stock Surly Steamroller with the exception of:
    Charge Spoon Saddle
    Cane Creek S-3 Headset
    Kool Stop Salmon Brake Pads
    700x38 WTB Interwolf Tires (good tires, but I want to try something a little bigger... possibly Speedmax 40's or Mythos Slick CX 42's)
    Kalloy Low Rise Bars (cut down to 18" wide)
    Lizard Skins North Shore Grips
    48x19... Good for the road, a little steep for trails. (going to get a 44t chainring someday)

    On the XXIX stock fork and Monkey Lite DH bar, uncut.

    On the old Bontrager a custom Retrotec I had Curtis build me with Bonty geometry and a Nitto bar.

    What would you like more pics of?

    steel lugs

    Here's yet another one. 26"@ 34/19 as it's rather hilly around here. Hope you like it.

    Fixed with a Fixxer




    I broke those cranks and, and have since replaced them w/ some Cannondale branded cranks off the ebay. I couldn't get the bars from slipping so put straight bars back on it too. It's geared 34x19 which is about a 52" gear.



    Taking the fenders off my commuter and putting on 35's is fun too.
    Offroad I run a 40x19 which is about a 57" gear.

    After you clear the obstacle with your front wheel, as you shift your weight forward, and arc over the object your rear wheel leaves the ground and you can put your pedals parallel to the ground until the rear wheel contacts again...or you just hope you don't bash your pedals on it.
