Fuck yeah, few vodkas, riding a fixie with no previous experience. I'll wipe the baby oil off the video camera and be right over.

you've managed to tick nearly all the fashion victim points - stupidly cut down risers, pointless deep on the front, you really need a tri-spoke for the rear to complete it though :satan:

Unfortunately danose, they aren't cut down risers. They are 540mm and come that way straight from the Nitto factory in japan. I had 580mm flat bars on it and it felt weird. Plus I don't own a D-Lock, cutoff jeans, nor a courier bag.
