My college and back fixie. It's an Edin. Bike Co. hybridy thing which I got from Bishopbriggs tip. Rear wheel has been (very) roughly re-dished and re-spaced, saddle has had all padding and cover removed and has been re-shaped with wire cutters, bars, bar ends, brake lever and brake were all out of the spares box, need a longer, lower stem and I'll be happy. Currently running 40x16 which is just fine for the flat roads around here. It's ugly but it's mine and cost 15 quid to get running :D.

love your £15 bike very very 8)

When are you putting beer mats in the spokes like all the mental bike Couriers in glasgow.

Is it a quill 1 & 1/8 stem you need? I have a inch as well as a 1 & 1/8 in my spare box if you need? Also have a rear crud guard but in black if you want to swap, my boys could use yours as a slide in the back garden :twisted: :lol:

You're a right pair of cheeky gits, if you're gonna take the wee then I'll take my ugly bike and pastey white legs off in a huff to a forum which'll appreciate us!

Oh, and I'll be in touch soon about that stem and crud guard Gazz.... :wink:.

That is a fine looking GF- clean and simple and really nice frame geometry.

Mind you I would say that :roll:
