My First Fixed Gear Bike
Here's the fixed gear bike I built. Sure is nice. It started out as a Nishiki Century road bike. Removed all unnecessary parts, replaced the wheels, handlebars, and driveline. It has 27 inch (also known as 630mm) Sun Mk13 II 18mm rims. Formula flip-flop hub. 1 1/4" wide tires. 52-19 gearing. Upright handlebars are comfortable, and you can grab near the stem for a nice drop position. What does the future hold? Someday, it'll have fenders, and new saddle, and even cooler bars.
New front rack
The grocery bike is getting some upgrades, namely some new grips. I need a new seat, too, cuz this one's ripped. Maybe one that doesn't soak water?
Carrying home new bikeparts on my new front rack. The gray basket is temporary, until I find a stronger, and longer term solution. This is one of those flexible plastic storage crates from Target.
