Got hooked on riding Fixed gear with my Pug so decided to give the old Raleigh the same treatment!This is it so far, I need to adjust the chain tension (the wheel will move back more then enough to sort this). Not ridden it yet as it's just getting dark but hopefully will take it out for a ride tommorow. Not sure about the handlebars but they are growing on me, I do have the original drops if I change my mind.

Yeah I'm not taken on the bars. They ought to be on a much older bike imo. Cut down and flipped drops instead?

You need more gearing by the way. How are you going to make progress with that :D

(in jest of course)
