    Nice Bike!! I just got my Fixation frame on Friday, spent a few hours building it. One problem I am having is the rear disc brake caliper mount, the weld seems to be in the way and I am going to have to grind away a little metal on my brake caliper, shouldn't be a problem though. Did you run into this?

    What size is your frame, and what travel fork are you running? I am running mine fully rigid but am thinking of putting some front suspension on.

    No issues with welds

    The frame is a 17 inch, and the fork travel is 105mm. Went together smooth.

    The frame and the handlebars are temps. I am going to try a few thinsg as far as bars. I have a road fixie and I like to move my arms and hands around. I have some candidates I am going to try out. The frame may be replaced with a custom sometime in the next year. Putting my bike money into road trips for the next 6 months.

    That's awesome! It's good to see someone else dropping some cash on their fetish frame.
