Awesome man. I think you and i need to chat more. I would love to talk to you more about your suspension setup. This is something i will be working on more this coming year when my engine is done.


Thanks

awesome thread and car.

On the fixie drafting project, build your way up to a 52/11. That was my daily when I was a messenger in Chicago. Had to go to a Cook Bros. MTB crank arm set so it was beefy enough to slow/stop. I broke an arm in two on the original set from metal fatigue

With that setup I topped out at about 58 according to the speedo of a cab I was passing-not kph btw

Amazing! Wish I had started into sailing at a younger age - such a fun sport!

One of the gents we sail with was in the Olympics for Canada racing Torpedos - It is amazing watching someone good rip a sailboat, it is like an art.

Holy smokes, that is like the Super GT500 JSTC of fixies! Badass...

Were you riding clips or strapped in?!

The city I go to school in is quite hilly but I really want to get some big boy gearing - that was some good motivation.

Have you ever been hit?

Thank you for the kind words boys, it keep us motivated and the wrenches turning at the Toucan Den

Did some christmas dieting to make up for the extra holiday weight

The stock front crash support;

Then we did some slice and dice on it, and ended up with removing 2.1lbs without sacrificing the rigidity.

Yeah takes a bit to get moving at a good clip but when you can get the commission on those expensive car runs to the far reaches because you can get there before a car it's worth not really being able to stop well.

I've had a bad knee since 16 so I always rode clipped but with speedplay frogs, can't do spd, look etc.

As much of a fixie purisit as I was I did run a front brake just in case. Only used it a couple times, the guys would give me shit and I'd show them the largely unused pads.

Never got hit it was always me hitting something my first year out on a mountain bike I t-boned a 74 Mercedes 300D that came off a side street in front of me when I was in a tuck haulin ass, spent a week in the hospital getting my bad knee sewn up as I drove a shift lever into the joint space and broke a wrist. Other than that nothing major, got doored a couple times, slammed into the back of a cab on an angle (thought there was more room) and kept going because I didn't want to pay for the dent.

Found a pic of the road version of my bike same make and color.

It is a pretty awesome sport when you more get experienced. Pretty fast paced as I am sure you would of realised on the Hobie.

Cool story about your mate, I am sure he knew how to get your boat moving. Also just a lil FYI, he would of sailed a Tornado which is an Olympic class 20 ft catamaran. A torpedo is a self propelled underwater missile. Hehe. I have seen a few Tornados racing around where I am and I have a lot of respect for the people game enough to sail them.

Wow that is an unreal life you lived! Much respect for people who message - must be an exhilarating job no doubt!

Heres some pics of mine, nothing special but feels good when ripping
