what do you get for 70k?


42 brand new street lamps to be precise but more on that in a bit. Another ride with Simon and it couldn't have been more contrasting than the previous one. No daylight this time but more importantly no wind or rain.

Riding from home we managed a 30m loop taking in some great forest singletrack. The trails are riding really well. Big grins as you pop out onto the fire road and dip back into the trees.

Simon had the biggest grin. His second official fixie ride. I had a quick go but luckily my brain found it too difficult to compute so unfortunately I don't need another bike. Simon is also a man of many facts which makes for intriguing conversation whilst I try and keep up with him.

Not need another bike? How is that possible?! Love that amazing, surreal photo.

She does need another bike just not a fixie for off road - that is just odd!

Get a tomi-cog, then your single speed can easily be converted to a fixie. I have a tomi-cog but am too scared to try off road fixed gear riding, I think it may however be the way forward for the shopper!
