I have a new One-One Il Pompino frame built up into a rather special bike, (fixed) with Miche Chain set, Goldtech hubs and open pro wheels, but it's not my only bike and doesn't (yet) figure heavily in my mileage quota, so I cant really talk about it much - yet! I got it for commuting, so I guess I'd post in there about riding it, rather than in here?
just got back from a ride on my fixed , went for my august century which i log on the darth vader/cycling plus site.
went round silverdale via scorton and was suprised how much cooler and cloudier it was up there.
no idea what make of frame i have though!
My SS conversion is a Shed of Dread, on wheels. Stands over any pimped up retro-niche-NJS approved frippery and has a really big wee.
One day I will take a picture of it. The sheer masculine beauty of a black Sora chainset with a 46t track ring mounted behind the spider will fry your eyeballs and render your dentist-mobiles as dust.
It's parts wot are approved for Japanese Keirin racing. Much loved by hipster fixsters who want impress their fellow cognoscenti down at the coffee shop. Please feel free to kick my arse for knowing. I've spent too long dribbling over on the Hub Jub site....
fair points all but NJS does generally give you an assurance of decent quality. Their quite picky about what gets the holy stamp. I have no NJS kit, except my Izumi chain and I only bought that cos it's made from pure gold
