I would, but I just ordered a new ride only yesterday.

Spirito? You need a cheap italian?
(Yes, plenty for you to work with in that loaded statement)


The shop that has it is just great!zmarke

I have not seen the frame in-person but I can say the shop is very good.

They saved an old frame for me and turned it into my first single speed... It could also be a fixed if I swaped the bmx freewheel for a track cog

A few weeks later I had them build me a geared road bike...

They are a great small service oriented shop that supports the local track racing community and other bicycling related orginizations. They know all things track, fixed, or single speed.
How do you like those Axial Bi-sports?look271

That's what those tires are, aren't they? I put them on my 2nd fixed gear (which I haven't had a chance to ride yet) and was wondering how they hold up and perform.
Love Them...zmarke

Very gripy. Very fine tread. Very nice ride.

My single-speed has 27" tires so I had to use them on the gearie.They are the older road-sport wire bead version which is what I wanted. They are "not" like most of the current tires which are made as if everyone wants to be lance. I was told by Bikeworks (even though I did not get the tires from them) that they will last a very long time unlike most newer road tires.

I got a good deal on them and since they matched my bike's paint scheme, I figured, what the hell, how bad could they possibly be?
