    Post Your Fixed Gear MTB

    Let's see what you guys are riding....



    I've been cruisng the "fixed" search threads, but thought it would be cool to see all the bikes in one thread


    I'm a bit late to the fixed mountain bike party, but here's mine to get the ball rolling:

    I will post pics of both of mine when I get a chance to take the pictures. Nice ride btw. Be ready to get **** for the "no brakes" though. When I am running a low enough gear I dont use my brakes, but they are still there on all my fixes other than my cruiser/grocery getter. (none of them are dedicated fixies either though)

    Okay, so I don't have a fixed gear mountain bike, but I have admired the Amaro Lollobrigida for quite some time. If I had the budget, I'd order one in a heartbeat!

    Also here's a link of Aimar (the owner of Amaro) doing to the Titan Desert MTB Marathon. Go to 4:20 & 5:43 to see shots of the bike. I've also seen some videos of Aimar doing single track and it looks like fun!

    Here's some photos:

    yeah i love those too, though i consider them more of a road bike with fat tires than a MTB...

    Yes, for a couple years now.


    One of the first times out. (This is university ag land, no trails harmed, just mud and cow $#!+.)


    The other extreme, less than a quarter mile away. And 50 degrees hotter.


    Spring time.


    TomiCOG. Enabler.

    It has had so many variations over the years.


    Now I have a Surly fixed disc hub with a Flow rim. No pixels yet, massive rains in CA this winter, so staying off muddy trails.

    Wow Steve, I would have never guessed that the Eno hub could handle fixed mtn. I have always been weary of those things slipping. But here is a case example of a man doing a wheelie on a fixed-gear mountain bike with the Eno. Blew my mind a little bit.

    P.S. my current bike status is that I sold my fixed gear Bianchi mtb, But am in the process of building up an OG Spec. Rockhopper with semi-horiz for the spring and pics will be posted soon as it is rolling (never coasting).

    Here's my Karate Monkey a while back. This is with the flip/flop hub & disc adapter. Now has red powdercoated rims and the fixed/disc rear hub.

    Coming soon(ish) - OnOne InBred with Sturmey Archer S3X 3 speed fixed hub.

    does it make good sense riding it on a SS?

    RotoRs work very well with fixed - the pic shows chainring equivalent of the variable leverage they give you.

    I note that you get the higher "gear" for acceleration and a lower "gear" for braking/resisting. By rotating the "BB", you can adjust where this cycle is clocked vs your power stroke - when I was tuning them initially, I found that moving away from "center" makes your cadence feel lumpish (centered feels turbine-like). Raising the high point gave more power standing, but made resisting difficult. Lowering it was opposite. Centered is sahweeeeeet.

    Also, when I picked up the Inbred frame I wanted to run it vs the KM - so I would swap the wheels back/forth between. But the Inbred had standard cranks, and doing 1 lap with each my knees started to hurt when riding the standard cranks where I had no such issues before or since with the RotoRs. YMMV

    You can get RotoRs used for about 1/2 price if you're patient.

    PS: The lack of DeadSpot really helps on steep climbs. I've also found that pulling up (using that "low gear") pays dividends too.

    A sign of things to come:



    15 minutes on the buffing wheel and my new TomiCog became 500% more awesome. Stay tuned for the rest of the bike..

    Jerry,

    Hope you were careful with the buffing wheel...


    I was polishing a Campy road ring on my bench grinder about ten years ago when it caught in the wheel, ripped out of my hands, whipped around and the teeth hit me straight across the bridge of my nose at about a 100mph. It about knocked me out, and put three nice deep holes in my nose that bled like a geyser....not a fun day, but it could have been a lot worse.

    some "kitchen glam shots" of my current ghetto set-up, the parts-bin supah star!

    '95 Trek 7K frame I bought when I was 17 in 1997
    ENO/King hubs on Bonty Mustang rims
    Parts bin OG Saint cranks 32T ring/bashguard
    stamped steel no name 17t cog/lockring
    ACS claws 18t freewheel
    beat eggbeaters
    Sram PC-8 chain
    Deore V-s front/rear cause I do the trail maintenance thing in B-burg
    Kalloy stem/Surly Torsion bar
    Kenda 2.35 Blue Groove fr/Nevegal 1.95 rear
    random other bits scrounged on the cheap/fly

    Running as is since '06 wouldn't change a thing, mainly because I am a broke-a$$ 29yr old college undergrad... again...I <3 the economy.... but it works for me.

    Once the snow melts I prolly show it outside, in use, Hah!

    Jesus! I always use a 7/8 guard over my buffing set up when i'm doing small things to avoid problems like this! Maybe now I'll think about a face shield!

    side note, I am in school for TIG/MIG welding/metal work, and the prof has us always wear a face shield when grinding, free-hand or on a bench. I learned the hard way a few years ago as well. live and learn I guess

    I'd recommend leather gloves too. Long ago when I was in school I had a classmate tag the back of his hand on a grinding wheel at speed. Tendons don't like that.

    Holy moly, this went sideways..............
    How 'bout for'ard again on track?

    I do not have this one any longer, but it was fun,

    Traded it for a sweet Rock Lobster MoFoCross.

    This one has morphed,

    again........

    Building up a red Rita this weekend, and some fixed fire road cruising in the El Nino rains is in order. Pixels will follow.
