Yes, it's fixed. No, there are no brakes other than my legs. And yes, it's as much fun as it looks. :D



cheers,

Steve

My 1990 Overbury's Pioneer, as riden on the first lap of this years Mayhem. Was great to show a few people that you can go fast(ish) on a 20year old bike, and without 6" of skill correction front and back :D

Going past the legendary heckling tent.....
