|Or should it be Slow fixed ride, not sure but I was going stir crazy after a day in the cubicle so upon returning home I headed out for a spin. I was wondering if other fixies roads look similar to mine that I have to ride on.|

|not enough clearance on this bike. I just switched out the front fork, the chrome has a dent in it. I replaced the fork with a carbon one that I scored a deal on and it has even less clearance than the chrome one that was on it. I have a Dawes frame I won on ebay coming and I plan on building it up with wider tires, cross tubbies actually. The Bob Jackson uses tubulars as well, it is sort of tough finding wider tubbies anymore...for reasonable bucks. So I am building the Dawes up as a fixed with vittoria cross tires. Should be interesting!|

|I guess I've gotta try getting the fixie out in the snow this winter, but I lean toward singlespeed in low traction.
Now, taking the cruiser out on the Va Tech duck pond when it had 6" of ice on it, THAT was a kick! Zero traction. What a test of skill! Or maybe it was failure of an intelligence test?

|you said: What a test of skill! Or maybe it was failure of an intelligence test?
Or Both, either way, it had to be fun!
Hardcore would be actually riding today with a fresh 8-12 inches of snow out there...looks like a XC ski day again!
