Up till recently it was this Bianchi DISS Single Speed. I just sold it, the frame flexes more than I like. Running a 44 x 18 up a steep hill all out I can make the tips of the cranks hit the chainstays. Still, I really do miss the looks of it -a lot. Regret selling it, so I might buy another one, but in a smaller frame size, perhaps it will flex less.

No rear brake Fritz.... that's a fineable offence in our part of the world!

You could make it into a fixed...
www.fixieking.dk

Then you could only get done for the missing bell and reflectors...

i know, i know.... the bosses broke in shipping, so i have to get them welded on again..

i don`t get the ss/fixie trend, i like Gears.... and my knees dont get smashed up..
I get the "keep it simple stupid"-idea, but no brakes and fixed, thats asking for trouble...for yourself and others..

my kona will get reflectors and all the bells and whistles...


is that the rossin from Den blå avis?...nice, how much did it set you back in the end?

I meant a fixed with a front brake....


No the Rossin is not from the blå avis. It's from my previous life.

Oh and it does have a front brake if you look closely. I don't use the brake much but it's nice to know it's there.
