whats the rear wheel???

are you commuting on tubs????

london is my favorite place to cycle, im there reguarly


Rear is Archtek 38mm laced with competition spokes to an american classic hub. Commuting on tubs no problem but the tyres (conti comp) are wearing out a little fast. Where abouts are you based?

I have 3 road frames so I decided to make this one a fixie. Got lucky with the 50/19 combo.When I push the chain down it drops less than a cm.I agree saddle is porky.

I didn't even notice this thread existed. Some cool bikes here! I like the Makino a page or so back.

I haven't posted any of my bikes because none are WW material :( Here are a few for this thread though...

here's my Alien V3 stealth machine

Changes regularly as I'm trying different bars- 33cm alpinas have gone, now on 35cm nitto which seems to do the trick.
2nd pic is getting ready to start the kilo at nationals with my pals front disc. Unfortunately the kilo was first event and they still had the doors open to let people in so the air was gusting round the track and the front disc was a nightmare!
