Here is an earlier creation...#9 or so in the stable of craziness. Bianchi Rollo cafe racer turned urban assault bionic klownbike. Zokes 100mm plush ass fork, Hayes mx-2 mech discs, LX levers, Truvativ isoflow cranks w/42T chainring, 16T cog, Wtb Laserdisc wheelset, A2Z rr disc adapter, Kore stem, Cane Creek headset, Wtb comfort V seat, Use carbon aero seatpost, Kenda Komfort tires 1.95, ergo grips, no name riser bars. The nitesun 10/20w lights move around from bike to bike..............I have robbed the seatpost for my road bike but went back with carbon wrapped one and now has lime green Oury grips.







It started out like this...100.00 ebay score FTW! Yes, I still have all the oem parts stored where I could return to oem state. Not sure why I would tho, lol.

I'm bad...this isn't mine (ex ebay photo) but what I want to build up - a Fixie with left hand crank. I'm got a steel frame/fork which is at the sandblasters at present. I'll respray it when it comes back (orange/silver) with decals and two pot clear.
I want to try a fixie as a training bike for my roadracing so it will have drop bars, set up like my road bikes, clip in pedals and full length guards for Winter (when our race season is).

Ditto, came in here to see why people choose fixed gear bikes and like what I see - now to try one and feel the difference :)

I hope you're going to change the angle on that seat. My grollies went numb just looking at that.

Just don't try freewheelin' over any potholes or manhole covers, or if you do you'll know why to never try it again... "vaulted" is the word that comes to mind.
