I think its good value for what it is instead of buying tools individually and it only took 2 days to arrive.

I would post photos but some scum broke into the house earlier in the eek and stole my laptop and camera....pain n the arse, third time this year as well.


Burglars are scum for sure :angry:
I wonder if they were doing the old steal the stuff, wait until its replaced with new stuff and then steal that x 2.

It wouldn't surprise me in the least if that's what they are doing. In the process of looking for a new place to live now, the landlord is useless and wont install dead locks or an alarm.

If you are still keen on a fixie you could try this http://bikehugger.com/post/view/fixed-gear-new-gen-the-6-bolt once you sort how you are going to tension your chain.
A combination of the magic gear, a half-link for your chain and some small flats on your rear axel to give you a bit of adjustment should work.
and heaps of info here http://www.velosolo.co.uk/faq.html

Just a quick update. Have decided to go singlespeed, to much effort trying to go fixed. Have got a chain tensioner and attached it.

Next is to sort out a cog and spacers for the rear wheel, crank set, bottom bracket and chain, handle bar tape, brake levers and cable then im away laughing.

I will look at getting the frame colour sorted after its all up and running and i've got it set up the way i want. I'm also moving out west so want to get it done asap so i can commute to work on it.

Chain tensioner porn follows.....
