I built this bike back at the beginning of lockdown, I had time to learn to ride fixed and build it up to what it is now. I love riding fixed as it makes you feel as one with the bike, it gives cycling abit of an edge and adrenaline factor. The wide flat bars give me ultimate control, but can become an issue in traffic sometimes. The 49T chainring upfront along with the 18T rear sprocket gives it great power transfer along with equal skid patches along the rear tyre. As you can tell there’s a theme when it comes to the colour of the bike, all black stealth is what I like. I head out most Thursdays up town to meet up with other fixed gear fanatics for an evening ride and beers. This is my fun, agile, aggressive commuter bike, nothing more is needed.
Thanks to Jack for sharing his super cool bike with us!
