19,142 • Most fun I’ve had building a bike. So my bike was an old fixed gear that had not been used in about 2 years. I wanted to revitalize and get back into riding fixed. I used aircraft grade paint stripper and then sanded down the frame ready for its first blast of primer. Matte black and red. That’s all I had in my head before I even started the build.
I threaded my own spokes with metallic red nipples. That alone took 2 hours, per wheel.
I run brakes on this because I live in the UK for commuting to work, and I do not trust the drivers here 🙂 thanks for checking out my ride.
