Narrow Deathtrap London Transport?
Scored this race bike at a good price local..rode it home on flat tyres....made some straight bars out of and old alluminium crutch to replace the wierd cowhorn ones...got some levers off a mountain bike...couple of new tyres while we were in the states and shes a beast!
Theres been a rise in people riding fixies and it seems to be the 'in' thing...but they scare me.....need brakes! and the fact that you can't stop pedaling around corners is bad.....catch that pedal on a tight corner and your off.....they do look good though...but.....fashion over function.
