Dave Russell fixed gear conversion

Bought this handmade steel frame and forks from DMCZone on www.lfgss.com before christmas. Finally got my hands on it *thanks koenig* and got it built up and i've been braving the snow and ice to ride it to work every day. It's my second fixed [after a pig-iron ladies peugeot] and I'm slowly getting used to it. Fast as hell but a short trip to the butty shop makes my thighs burn.

Riding in my first alley-cat (or ginnel-whippet as they're called up here) in Leeds this sunday, I can't see myself challenging for a podium finish)
