    little help here?

    hey guys.
    i haven't ridden a fixed in 20+ years since i was messing in NY, and with the worlds coming up in Sydney, i thought now was the time to get back into it.
    so i hunted around and found a track bike (comparitivly) cheap, and off i go.
    of course i hadn't remembered much so it's all been a bit of a shock.
    i'm now working on the damn thing doing 50 jobs a day up and down spring hill.
    i'm getting stuff sorted out slowly. things like don't try and run a 43/14 for the city. and that 43/18 is to easy. oh, and edward street is scary as hell when you have no brakes (i've since fit a front brake).
    ok, so getting to the point. the most important thing i've found out/remembered is you need a lockring. if you don't have one bad stuff happens.
    so i REALLY need a lockring. i work in the city, i can get to anywhere in the cbd to pick it up, and i'll pay in cash.
    HELP!!
    oh, and when/where are you all meeting for the saturday memorial ride?
    thanks.
    and if rhino is the guy i met in the lobby of 255 adelaide about a week ago, yeah, it's me....

    Rhino's the good looking one ......................

    Rotafix your cog until you find a lockring - http://204.73.203.34/fisso/eng/schpignone.htm - holds up pretty well if you stay away from skidding/skipping agressively ...

    Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.

    What rogaine said.

    If you're using a front brake anyway, just try to hold off on skidding until you get the lockring and you should have no problems. Easier said than done - for me anyway.

    I'm sure one of the Brisbane guys will be able to point you in the direction of a decent bike shop, but if not, there are a few shops elsewhere in Aus that will happily mail you a lockring.

    Alright, the brisbane crew is getting larger. I heard about a TUE night ride as well, along the bike paths of Brisbane (organised by MTB, but fixie can be done). Need lights, will give it a crap next week.

    Soon.........we will have an alleycat!
