Fixed & Filthy

by

It was only a matter of time till we actually got around to it, it’s not hard to set up, and holy shit its fun as hell on fire! – I think we have a new Tuesday summer ride in CHCH.

On Thursday I came up with a really longwinded over complicated way of setting up my single speed MTB to ride fixed, it involved buying a new mtb wheel, firing up the welder and basically filling the hub with brass till it’s hub aint free nomore – I gave Chris a shout to get him in on the action, told him my AMAZING solution and he recommended I shelve it, flip the disc rotors off our wheels and ISO on a cog. No shit, that simple, it works sweet and the chainline is gold.

Now we have been for 3 rides fixed no brakes offroad in the woods and can’t wait to get on another track to see how goes in different conditions – downhill here we come! (camo shorts optional)

This is just a quick vid and some forest shots, nothing impressive but it shows the basic set up in action. I couldn’t be assed pulling the front disc rotor off, but the brake is gone and the rotor is on the wrong side anyway… just so you don’t call bullshit.
