Tired of all the fixie hoopla? Do you feel like you are about as zen-like as you can be? Well I hope not! This is a fixed gear mountain bike (yes, it's rideable). This vintage steel frame was built up with a Tange steel rigid fork and heavy duty components.
As you hipsters know, fixed parts take a beating (if you ride your bikes, you posers, you). So this rig has a steel 34t Surly chainring, an E-13 poly bashring, and a steel 16t Shimano cog.
Furthermore, the wheels are overbuilt Sun RhynoLites laced to Shimano hubs with 14g DT Swiss spokes. The frame does a great job of taking a bit of the shock out, but I've also installed a suspension seatpost for a bit of extra cush.
Pedals are Welgo platforms. Install clipless at your own risk and probable demise. Saddle will not be the one pictured - I love it too much. Instead, you'll get a Velo or none at all.
Let me know if you have any questions or need further clarification. Fear not, I will not make fun of you, think less of you, or reply in sentences containing "gnarly", "wicked", "bobo", or the like. This has been built and ridden by a professional mechanic and, as such, is safe, fun, and godawful to look at.
