A Fixed Fixation!

I found a new use for the Fixation, it is now a fixed gear, rigid 69er! Yes, it is my first fixie and it is for off road riding! I thought I would give it a try after taking a few spin classes at the gym.

I got the TomiCog this week and spent Thursday night hooking up the rear wheel, adding a new break line to the rear brake. Repairing the rear brake and putting on pedals. As you can see the TomiCog mounts where the disc brake rotor would go.

It will be interesting to see how it works and how I handle it in the woods! You might notice another cog back there, that is the normal freewheel cog, so if it gets too tough, I can always flip flop to the free wheel. Gear ratio is 32:20.
