Official Fixed Gear Thread

That's a good looking Bianchi a page back. I took my friend's road bike (platforms too) for a spin the other day, lost control while coasting (lapse of judgment...forgot about using the brakes to control speed) and bit it. Tore up his bartape and now he's pissed. I guess I take the precision control of fixed for granted!

the tape would be the least of my worries if someone took my bike and ate shit

I look how you wanna look, I fuck like you wanna fuck, I am smart, capable and most importantly, I am free in all the ways you are not.

I don't know how someone forgot how brakes work.

Does anyone know where I can bike up a Leader 725TR in white 53 or 55cm? Everywhere is fucking sold out...
April 09, 2010 @ 10:18:26
did you not try ebay or the leader bike store? its not any cheaper to buy a leader frameset. It doesn't include a headset or fork. You can buy a lot better for the money.

yeah a 725tr frameset (frame fork hs) is around 500. for that much you could get a used ftp, which i wish i had done.

for the record, I own a 725tr

all my friends have fixies down here in Irvine, which seems pretty out of place. They are nice bikes, but i tried ridin em and for some reason, I just cant get use to em. Almost ate shit once tryin to stop...

But i got my baby here though tongueface No one can touch me, 10 speeds of pure fun.


pretty gnar, minus pedals. i wanna get some gearz this summer maybe

Nope it fits me like that. For some reason people think that stems should be level or angled down b/c it looks better that way. The idea is your back is supposed to be flat and parallel to the ground.

your homie should have gotten some foot retention rather then a 300$ front wheel.
also bars pointing 2da sky.

yea. I'm 6 foot tall with the torso of someone thats supposed to be 6'3 with the legs of someone who is 5'9. That bike is huge though. Its a TT 56 which basically is like a 58 roadie. I wanted to get a specialized transition but I never a good deal on one in my size.

i would cop a fixie except wear i live it's like a fad and it would llok stupid if a bought one
April 14, 2010 @ 00:01:18
How would you look stupid? I think sometimes, it's OK to do the same as others are doing, especially if you'll enjoy what they are doing. A lot of people follow trends, it's part of life. Do what you want to do, ignore ill-mannered society. blushing

That's so sick. What kind of frame is that?
April 15, 2010 @ 17:23:07
broakland pipe bomb. It is basically a custom steel GT track.

April 17, 2010 @ 20:24:11
This a good deal for a road bike?

nice hed there tim. yeah the only similarity between the gt and the pipebomb is the tt slant and the triple triangle. the gt frames were mass produced alu/steel frames while the pipebombs are custom made steel?/carbon frames.
