Default My SS/Fixie Project

Hi PMTB! Lately I was just able to watch the movie "Premium Rush" in dvd and I was inspired by "Wilee's" white fixie bike - simple yet astig. Actually I watched the movie repeatedly.

To start I looked for a steel frame in Quiapo stores me nakita ako P2.5k daw tapos orderin pa. I even visited a surplus bike shop in Maceda last Monday which I saw in sulit. I tried to post in our car club forum and luckily, somebody who I don’t even meet yet gave me an old steel racer bike frame for free, sabi nya nahalungkat nya raw sa bodega nila which was used by his brother. So nagkita kami sa weekly eb last Tuesday.

Eto yun steel frame. Sinukat ko nasa 49-50 cm yun seat tube. I stand mga 5’ 9 ½”. I’m not sure kung fit sa akin yun frame size.



The rust



Uubra na po kaya yun frame size sa akin or need ko pa modify?

you might want to go to online bike fitting sites. actually mas madali sukatin yan because the correct way of measuring is using the ETTL (effective top tube length) rather than seat tube size

Sir, hindi mo na yata kailangan ng brakes kung fixie ang gagawin mo. You'll need a fixed gear (or reversible/flipflop) hub though. And kung first time mo magra-ride ng fixie, baka kailangan mo magpractice muna sa mga subdivision or sa hindi busy na kalsada. Masyadong nakakapanibago yung hindi ka titigil sa pagpadyak habang lumiliko.

Sir, wag matakot sa fixie. Mukang lang mahirap padyakin pero once you get the hang of it, yakang yaka na.

Ok lang naman mag-preno lalo na sa baguhan. Sa harap usually nag lalagay ng preno. Di na kelangan sa likod. Actually yung brakes will just help you slow down. I advice you to go straight sa fixed gear. wag ka na mag freewheel.

Baguhan rin lang ako sa fixie pero mabilis naman natuto.

Woke up early today to start paint stripping bago pumasok opisina.

materials:



after two hours:



only examined closely the frame today saw this canoe like shapes. ano po purpose ng design na ito?





also this one with nut & bolt at rear legs para po saan ito?



Found some linseed oil. (Glad I've read a thread about this last night). Problem is di ko makuha yun oil ng hindi sumasama yun paint color.



Another question po. Is the 1 inch head tube size standard for this kind of frame?

By the way measured ETTL is 53 cm.

Thanks po ulit sa tulong.

yung bolt and nut, kung hindi ako nagkakamali, kabitan yan ng rear reflector? Yung mga canoe-like impression, para siguro sa rear wheel? haha.. speculation ko lang.

BTW, before ako bumili ng MTB, fixie muna yung nabili ko. NOTE: NABILI. haha.. sa sobrang atat ko mag-bike, hindi ko na chineck kung ano yung "fixie". Akala ko kaya fixed gear, kasi walang kambyo. Nakita ko lang na mura sa sulit.com yung ganun (5K yung Lespo na brand) kaya bumili ako kagad. Naive. I know.

Nung una kong inikot sa subd namin, nagkapasa ako sa paa kasi automatic na tumigil ako sa pagpedal nung liliko. Sapul yung sakong ko. Madali nga lang din gamitin once you get familiar with it. Binenta ko nga lang kasi nahihirapan ako ipang-commute.

@sir keyjey salamat sir you gave me an idea.
@ sir duroy, salamat sir goodluck din po sa project nyo.
@npafaller actually sir nahirapan ako maghanap ng fork sa quiapo kase mostly were oversized fork na and wala na masyado threaded. me nakita ako sa roosevelt try ko check ulit pag me time this week.

Brought the frame to Quiapo yesterday to canvass parts lang muna sana pero napasubo na buuin sa Decimal. Almost all parts are generic lang. Kulang pa fork.



Here is the problem. The frame is designed for 27s so bitin yun brake holder sa 700c. sabi pwede daw pa weld ng mababa na holder?



im wondering if i will encounter the same problem with the fork kung di makahanap ng pang 700c rims.

well at least mas madaling maghanap ng fork para sa 700c kesa 27 hehe

oo ayos lang magpa-weld basta sure ka na di ka na gagamit ng 27 na wheels
or imbes na magpa-weld ka sa likod eh pwedeng fixie nalang so wala ng brakes

thanks sir keyjey.

Got a 700c fork, headset & handle post today. i noticed masyado mahaba yun fork tube. how high can i go for a spacer po kaya if paputulan ko na yun tube? the head tube is measured only at 76mm. para alam ko po sana kung gano kakapal na spacer ang hahanapin ko. salamat po ulit mga masters.

Default Re: My SS/Fixie Project

try to look for long-reach brakes, mukhang kakasya para di ka na magpa weld, shimano model R450,tig 1k kasi painted lang, at yung R650 na ultegra level, mas mahal kasi polished, pero may iba pa dyan brand

sa road/ fixie bikes, generally dapat same level or 1-2 inches lower ang handlebar mo compared sa saddle, mas astig tingnan pag subsob pero masakit sa likod pag di ka sanay

so, depende sa flexibility mo, it's safer to leave it longer muna or even higher than the saddle, then as you become more flexible, ibaba mo na lang dahan-dahan ng 5-10mm each time
