Talking of fixies ...

... I couldn't resist this at the London Bike Show.



Any ideas on build kit?

Ooooooooh. Ahhhhhhhhh. Nice, Bartali, very nice. Drool, drool.

How are you coming along, mate? You'll know your knee is fine when you've finished 50m on that fixed gear!
Bartali

How shoulds I build it up? Old school campag seems appropriate maybe?

The knee is getting better every day .... but still a long way to go. I've just started 15 min sessions on the turbo trainer (without any resistance) so everything is positive. Knee still looks more like a balloon than a knee!!

Old school Campy would be classy.

Bartali,

can you get hold of any comfrey? (knitbone) (Symphytum officinale) Comfrey tinctures and ointments are available but nothing like as effective as a cold poultice made from the crushed boiled leaves.

I'll give it a try Cardinal - thanks for the tip.

I've told you before ... Shimano is great as long as its XTR and on a mountain bike Wink

I'm starting to agree regarding Shimano, TT.  Just broke my third shifter (today) this year.  Stupid little crash.  You have to replace the whole shifter.  Not so with Campagnolo I am told.
