Riding a Fixie is not for the faint of heart. Fixed Gear bikes, "Fixies" were originally made for velodrome work but have made their way onto the streets, starting out as more of an 'underground' movement in locations such as Sydney, LA and New York, the scene is starting to fixate here in Bali (no pun intended.) This bike from Deus Cycleworks shipped over from DEUS CAMPERDOWN has a rather impressive spec list, consisting of :-
Deus Special Frameset, Double butted Tange cr-mo tubing, Chrome lugs, Fork crown, Front and rear dropouts, Velocity Chucker Wheelset, Continental Gatorskin Tires, Miche Primato Pista Crankset, Miche Supertype Seatpost, Miche Primato Pista Headset, Izumi Chain, Nitto Bar/Stem, San Marco 'Concor' saddle, San Marco leather bar tape, Shimano Ultegra SL brake, MKS Syvlan track pedals/toe clip and Toshi NJS toe straps.
If you live in Bali and want a closer look at this bad boy, it is now on display at RAW STORE on sunset.
On a side note, we are off to Jakarta for the weekend where our mates, Rocket, are having their shop opening and a whole lot of Fixie fueled fun. Watch this space early next week for an update.
