    To slow and/or stop the bike.:biggrin:
    Or do you mean as opposed to rim braking?
    Disks imo give better and all-weather braking. I also prefer the aesthetics.

    It's a bit cheeky to describe those as skinny tyres! :biggrin:
     
  7. I was meaning why not rim brakes if brakes at all if it is a fixie?

    It was all quite BBC 2 travelogue until you started talking about the chainstays...

    I've cycled that stretch of road, in both directions, I too was slightly perturbed when you started describing the rear stays :blush:. Why is your front Q/R skewer facing forward in that slightly erect menacing way?:blush:

    Can we have some footage of you actually riding?

    More critique: the bottom bracket has external bearings, not the chainset. :biggrin:

    Nice bike, though!

    Thanks Mr. Pedantic! Well if you must know, the spider and the bb axle are a single unit, so technically, I could be correct!:biggrin:

    I don't think I should've watched it really, as it made me look at the Cotic website and now I want one!

    Oh dear. I've had a look at my current account and I would appear to be about £1500 or so in the black at the moment! ;)

    There must be something more sensible I could do with that sort of dosh? Can anyone think of anything?

    (sorry for thread resurrection, btw)
