Thanks :) as you see it in the picture it's on a freewheel (i love speeding down hills) but the hub is fixed / free so sometimes i'll ride fixed if on more flat terrain.

great looking bike ... looks more 1969 than 2009!

I went into Bob Jacksons recently - I advise anyone on this site to steer clear..... as you'll be penniless in seconds!!!!

Modern bikes that have the retro style, you have to see them in the metal to see how wonderful they look. One of the blokes that worked there had his bike in and its the first 58cm+ road bike I've ever seen that looks really really good rather than a gangly gate. Stunning.

Prices? From £1300 upwards for a full bike....

Bob Jacksons are actually pretty well priced considering there all handbuilt, nice build really like the beaten mudguards.
