Hello Dennis, I am a fairly new fan of this gallery (riding buddy turned me onto it earlier this year). I have been "building"/riding fixed & SS bikes for several years, and when this Brazilian road frame came into my possession, I knew that I needed to turn it into a fixie for distance commuting (I was born in Brazil). This is a typical road-race frame with no mudguard brazes, 2 water bottle cage brazes, and no space for tires wider than 25mm.
List of Specs/Parts: 1998 Caloi Comp, Size 52cm C-C, Frame-Alcoa 6061 T6 Aluminum, Color-Reflex Green, Fork-1" Kinesis Carbon, Cane Creek S1 Headset,Thomson Post and Stem, Selle Italia Flite Ti saddle, Salsa Pro Bar, Hand-Built (by me) 32hole Wheelset: White Industries Eccentric Fixed/Fixed Track rear hub w/130mm spacing +White Ind Racer front hub+Mavic CXP21 Rims , Michelin 700X23 Krylium Carbon Tires, Race Face Cadence crankset 172mm w/44t DMR BMX chainring, Surly 19t Track Cog (I live on the top of a 8mile long climb), KMC Z410 Blue Chain, 1 front brake (Shimano 600) 2 Tektro Campy style Levers
This is my tribute bike (to my birth Nation) that is being used, with SKS raceblades, as my my commuter/trainer for all seasons. Thank you so much for the great site and the perfect place for us, fixed gear riders, to showcase & discuss about our two wheeled loves.
