Check out Sheldon Brown's site mentioned above, I converted an old frame with vertical dropouts and a cracked gear hanger using his tip for cutting down the axle length. Using that fix and a half link I sorted an fixed wheel with limited fuss that could take a range of ratio's.

Oh FC. Please don't!!! You'll be missed says he who rarely appears in the fantasy forum mainly due to work more than anything else and the threads have exhausted themselves when I get to look at them! Though you do seem to have thought it out but hopefully you won't be too much of a stranger....

- The Cycle Show on ITV: what did you think?1 year 29 weeks agoI agree with everything said
I agree with everything said above Considering the haste with which the show was put together, presumably in an effort to retain the viewing figures generated by the excellent TDF coverage on ITV4, it was unlikely ever to appeal to the cognoscenti.
I'll watch it again to see if it improves, and if it does I will be pleasantly surprised!
Edit - 23 August 2012:
Having watched it a few more times since, I'm still not enthusiastic. The one-hour format should give greater scope, but that in-depth review of folding bikes last week wasn't exactly incisive wasn't it? I really wish they would lose the cafe background - having people immediately behind the presenter and guests chatting, eating dinner, wiggling their toes, smoking a fag outside the window - it's more than distracting, it's disgusting!! Even an OB interview had to be conducted in a busy street cafe with similar microcosmic urban background.
- Purist Vuelta1 year 29 weeks agoSo at least
So at least 3rd,4th,5th,13th,20th and 27th today although I missed out on Purito and Froome.
Thought Anton could make the difference for me, but really disappointing so far.
Nonetheless decent output, but as the defending champion I still expect a lot for the coming stages.
