fixed MTB




This is the latest frame from my Uncle Chris. I wanted a dedicated fixed gear with a stouter tube set than my current SS, horizontal drops instead of sliders, and no rear brake mounts. The fork was made for me by Jay at Stoic Cycles , right outta Great Bend, Kansas. Notice the little kick plates on top of the fork, for resting your weary legs on a downhill that you do not want to spin down. That comes in handy when spinning your trail riding gear through town to the trailhead. Huge base miles will soon be spent aboard this battle rig.

I gave Zeke just a little trouble about this picture he took of your new ride:

The way the lettering is cut off, it looks like "POO."

Have fun on your new machine! It's a real beaut.

Are those paul dropouts?? That is what I need, hopefully the exile 29er will be good this weekend.

What's with the tape on the downtube?

Yeah they are Pauls dropouts and they do work slick. The tape is from my own lack of planning when telling Jay and my Uncle what I wanted and the raised crown of the fork hits the downtube. I may get a different fork built-but for now it is innertube/aluminum can/inner tube/ electrical tape

1 fixed gear, no brakes, fully rigid, and you'll probably still beat me with it :-)

sweet bike. I've converted my KM to single and I've been riding it quite a bit. I've only been on a fixed gear bike one time. It was Matt Chester's rig. What kind of gear are U running?

Cameron C. said...

Right now it is 34x18, but I have a 16 on the flip side. I am going to back it off a tooth and do a 19 on the back, and then actually flip it over for getting around on roads.

Hey man! Josh Davison here. I heard you had a blog, thought I'd check it out and see how things are. From what I read things seem to be going well for you. Tons of riding for sure! Blessings! Oh, killer fixie btw. Those podiums look sick!

Sure is a purdy bike you got there...real purdy.

I'm ready for a skid-o-rama competition the next time we get some sweat-seeping roads...that is if winter ever yeilds itself long enough to allow.

Ride soon?

Cameron C. said...

Soon and very soon
