I did ask on this esteemed forum and the feeling was that if Lelly was comfortable as a 58 why would I need a bigger bike just cos it was a fixie. All the dimensions (except stem length) are slightly bigger than on Lelly and I rode her to Edinburgh and back. Anyway time will tell.
i hope you find yourself comfortable on it.
(but really, i think you need a larger bike than this)
I so enjoy coming on here. I say such nice things about everyone else's bikes and mine just get slagged off.Well, that does look bloody stupid - but then so do I! Have fun Twizzle, and keep pedalling remember...keep pedalling. Say it to yourself all the time until it becomes a habit. (Or you are arrested by the 'mooning' police!)
It'll be unusual to see a Civil service buttock in the air rather than sitting in a comfy chair somewhere - can you possibly cope?
What do the 10mm bolts do that are behind the back wheel (apart from make it more difficult to fix a puncture)?
Thank you. Seat post has been shortened. Will post another pic soonYou mean the ones sticking out the back? They're for tensioning the chain, eg, making sure the wheel is correctly placed in the horizontal drops. They're only really needed to hold the axel in the right place while doing up the wheel nuts.
FWIW, other than the seat post, I *really* like they look of your bike. The bull bars are nice too, I recently put some on my fixed gear bike, and it's transformed it in a very positive way.
