    Took the plung and bught my first Fixie (and some goodies too)

    So i took the plung and got myself my first fixie ever, first experiance was weird, and yes the pedlas gave the back of my legs a few whacks when i tried to coast haha - so now i have a nice couple of cuts (all part of the fun i guess)

    So i bught myself an NS Analog '10, Then i got some colour matched DMR v8 pedals and a Charge masher chain in green too.

    Im going to powdercoat the top cap to match the seat clamp and i have powdercoated one chain ring bolt to match the wheel spokes

    Indeed, most of them are, this one is actually somewhat tasteful but there are some that just look like clown bikes.

    Get some straps or toe clips. Get rid of the rear brake. Get your seat up unless you're that short.

    This thread has lost its sarcastic edge. Nice bike, G, I know Sheldon has a writeup on how to lock up the rear if you need a flat spot on your tire.

    Nice. Looks better than a lot of the fixies the "cool kids" at UCSD ride. Been meaning to get one myself to try it out.

    All sorts of things are possible fixed, if the bike is strong enough... just don't ask me to show you

    Color coordinating is much more important than frame size, seatpost adjustment or quality components. New studies indicate that color coordinating your rim, chain, seatpost clamp, hubs, and headset pacers reduces friction by a 20 percent. It also increases the rider's "ironicness" by a coefficient of 45.

    Besides, what difference does it make if you can get somewhere fast if you can't look good getting there?

    Broken crank, yow. It definitely looked like he coasted on the jump at :20, but I may be wrong. I like how he got on the front tire to reset the cranks before the stair drop.

    Ouch. Breaking a crank on a bike with no other brakes O_O

    I've kinda wanted to build a cyclocross fixie, or a full-on mountain fixie. I see people bashing on road rims pretty hard, but I still worry cuz I'm a lot bigger than most of those people.
