Brakes would be a good idea never the less... oh and your seatpost is around the wrong way.

Like the colour of your tyres they work well, but not sure how retro a hydroformed aluminium frame is.

Sweet! Looks like an oversized Releigh Burner!

(Is it hydroformed or is it just a headtube gusset?)

that seatpost and that short stem tells me that the bike is perhaps a tad to big?

There's always one....

One of the Copenhagen bike messengers tore up the field in the Slush Cup on a brakeless fixed MTB last winter.
