classic

that's a classic beauty. elegant. from a distance, it could represent photos of a bike 100 years ago. guess it would have to be b/w photos though (black coffee, no cream).

Thanks

Ed from Mighty Rider in Vancouver put it together for me.
Spot Highline frame and fork (from Micheal before he sold Spot)in a cream color, Brooks Honey Brown Swallow and bar tape (it is awsome bar tape), Surly hubs and Velocity rims, Mungo bars and some old Dura-ace cranks and brake.
about a 12 mile round trip to the local coffee shop, but this rides so well it's all good.:thumbsup:

Hey brother...

My new Spot fixed gear, honey and cream for the morning coffee run.
Nice rig you got there....me likes um latte

I have a Spot SScX that I ride flixed...42X17x21...I dig, it is the catz azz for my local rec area trails. My fork is a Spot straight blader that appears to be hella raked-out. I couldn't really tell from your photos, but your appears this way too? Is it? I know yours is a road bike, so the geo would be different...but the rake. In the slower switchbacky/techyness the front end is slow. I was going to replace it, but if I did I think I think I would get toe overlap and that just ain't acceptable. So, I wonder if all or most spot frames/forks of the non-mountain variety end up have a more than average rake in the fork that makes the overall geo work?
