    Sorry to jump in guys... Mr Phoebus...those bars, cut off drops i assume.

    I just got a old Raleigh as a rebuild project, not fixed, but the guy had the same style bars with STIs mounted.
    I think it looks kinda cool, but different. Never saw that done before...then lo and behold...i saw a guy in London on Saturday, same style bars on a fixed.

    Is it common ?....have i lived a sheltered life ? :blush:

    An observation...how in the world do people ride in London, on a fixed, with all the traffic ? Respect due.

    afraid it's of the MTB variety too, although a little different to most.

    Not putting a pic up of the road SS (a Jacques Anquetil 'Maillot Jaune') until I get it painted.

    Yer! Loads like that especially in The Smoke. The couriers there are ace riders on fixed. Mind you, they do congregate in a bar and ....

    Your conversion I assume? I did something similar with my Trek (I'll post a picture later in the day). I'm trying to identify the forks - what are they?

    Ok here is mine:

    imgp1170.jpg

    It is a Trek 4500 MTB from a few years back. I replaced the suspension forks with some rigid Kona Project 2 forks. I've stealthed also the Easton bling because I also commute on this bike. I used a DMR kit (click - yes I know it needs a clean!) kit to convert the bike to singlespeed. The cranks are just regular Deore cranks with the granny and big rings removed and an FSA bashguard added (click). The tyres are Vredestein Perfect Moires which although not fast are nice and grippy in the wet and large enough for me to be happy on the occasional off-road diversion on my commute home. Occasionally I go XC single-speeding on this bike. It's quite exciting, not least because when I leave the lock at home it pretty much halves the weight of the bike. :tongue:

    I've got a pompino. You know what they look like. I've added some black SKS mudguards, changed the front brakes to tektros and added a bottle cage. Other than that, standard. Boring huh?
