Won't be riding it fixed - that's a mug's game, as I've repeated ad nauseum!
You have to post a pic now.
Patience is a virtue and one most easily lost
The curse of the cheap bike purchase: I just bought new bars, new stem, new chain... maybe I could reuse the bar tape to keep the costs down.
I've been riding fixed for years, whats supposed to be wrong with it?
Well, since the freewheel was invented there's been no need for it, apart from penny farthings.
And it only builds up your slowing down muscles, anyway...
And they're great fun.
I guess that's a good enough reason for anything!
I fitted my cranks and 46t chainring; new gold KMC chain; 42cm Ritchey anatomical bars and shorter stem and recycled the bar tape to save £6.
Of course, now it's not a £75 bike any more...
Anyone need a 110mm stem (1 1/8" x 25.4mm) and a 44cm bar?
