Just Ride It

So I've just started working for Fitzroy's freshest and sexiest custom fixie shop, Just Ride It. (246 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy)

Ride Like a Wombat #2

A continuation of the first one...

20/2 2013  1748km. I put the bike together but the gears are not working very well especially on the larger rear rings. The cluster is wobbling from side to side because the freewheel is loose. I have put my spare wheel on for now which is working a lot better. I'll pull the other one apart later on and see what's going on.

Went for a quick burn to Diamond Creek and back and felt OK. I think my legs are recovering from the…

Just How Important is Bike Fit?

I spent much of my research in biomechanics understanding gait patterns in children and adults, gait efficiency and injury prevention. Three years ago i began my journey understanding the biomechanics of cycling.

What are your thoughts on the growing popularity of multi coloured Fixies in Melbourne?

Have seen alot of these vintage track fixies going around Melbourne these days, growing by the number each day. Alot of pink wheel rims, and orange tyres, and even mixed colours. Is it all getting a bit too much? When will they start riding the classic colours again?

Also, most of these people are riding them on freewheel model anyway, so im guessing they just like the look of the frame. Would most these people still ride a fixie if they included gears? hehe

Ride2Work day article in Geelong Advertiser

THE roads will see an increase in bright lycra today as many commuters try out the two-wheel option for Ride2Work Day.
