Oh, interesting! On the rims there are two stickers that
is labeled Prym Giro Nirosta Speichen .
I did a quick google search and didnt find much info,
the only info I found was about ordinary Prym spokes.

How do you mount/dismount a fixie 'cross bike without breaking your legs?

That looks awesome...

...what width tyre do you use out of interest? I've got 30c Michelins which come up as 32c in reality, but I believe I could do with 35c.

I use 30c Schwalbe CX pro , think up to 35c will work in the fork but im not sure I could do with anything bigger than 32c in back.

Here is the poor bike in last weekends cx race in stockholm.

The wild wavy spokes look great in motion!

The wild wavy spokes did nothing to absorb the bumpy parts of the course,
but they sure look good in motion. :D

This'll be interesting.....

Lovely build but I wouldn't have thought it's practical to have a fixed CX bike if you're actually going to do CX on it. There are so many sections where you don't want to have to pedal, like the approach to the dismounts, the slippery downhill sections and the turny bits. Single speed OK. Fixie bad. 7+ speed rear great.

Good luck, let us know how it went. It's always nice to see a retro CX bike in action.
