    Hi!

    I got my latest build driveable today.

    Idea came when I win those 80mm rigidas from one competition.
    I'm so into this Fixed Bikes at the moment that I wanted to use them in that field.
    So, 80mm rigidag + offroad tires + Fixie = Bicycle SUV?!

    Tires are Nokian Gazzaloddis 3x24". Because bike will not be light as feather I wanted
    to have brake on front. Because rim is so wide I used drum brake (disk would be too hitek)
    Rear hub is NOS steel Fix-Fix. On rear I machined 23 theeth offset sproket.
    BB is widenned 2cm, front sproket is 52 Sugino at the moment but I will probably change it
    for 46 theeth. Frame I made completely by my self, I used 2 old street bike frames as a material.

    Updates will come.

    pretty cool. Probably a first to combine a pursuit bike with some big fat tire/rims.

    Hey, slowing speed is working quite well. Actually today when I change 46-23 gearing, its stoping really well. Its many fun to skid it on sand roads!
    Tomorrow I hopefully get front brake working on it.

    I'm sorry but you exceed the maximum fat tire coolness allowed on this website. If you pack up the bike and send it to me I might be willing to look the other way. :D :D :D :D :D

    Wow, I am impressed. I have wanted to do something similar for a while now and the cost of the wheels/tires has been holding me back. Where did you find the tires? The last time I found some online they were $50 each. :shock:

    Hey, those tires are Finnish made - Nokian (ex-Nokia, same who makes phones) Gazzaloddi's..
    Yes, they were expensive, 38euros (55$!) but I didnt have choise, I needed them.
