The fixed-gear's renaissance supposedly stems from West Indian immigrants in New York working as cycle couriers in the Eighties. They had used them at home because they were cheap and easy to maintain, and continued using them in the US. Their light frames and speed made them perfect for work. It's popularity spread throughout the courier community, finally crossing to the UK and other countries(The Observer, Sunday March 9 2008).
..So when it was time to get a new bike there was no other choice than a custom fixed wheel bike from Brick Lane Bikes(Although i must add they are BLOODY RUDE in there i wouldn't recommend a visit unless you have developed a particuarly thick skin! However can't let that ruin my fun!
We started with the frame and it had to be cream, the front wheel cost the same of a normal bike and is by Aerospoke which is currently out of stock due to high demand. The back wheel is handmade with custom gold rims.
Welcome to bike royalty.
