2006 S-Works Langster

My second ever fixed gear. My first one was pre-built and purchased on eBay. After riding it for less than a month I fell in love with fixed gear riding and decided to part out the bike so that I could build up this frame that I found dirt cheap (and practically new) on Craigslist. The previous bike was also way too big for me so the new 52cm frame feels even more amazing now because it fits like a glove!

I'm 5'8. The last bike was way too big for me which is why I ended up selling it. This bike fits me much better. My ideal size is 54/53 but since this is a track frame 52 feels spot on!

hows the Double Water Bottle Mount working out for you?

AndrewGK says:

It works very well. I sometimes go on longer rides (40+ miles) so the dual water bottle mount is a necessity (There are no drillings on the frame for water bottle cages). It holds the water bottles far enough away from the seat post so that you can fit a small saddle bag underneath the seat (although the cages obstruct access to the saddle bag). It also doesn't hold the bottles in the most aerodynamic position but then again this is a track bike that is being ridden on the road.

Hope that helped!
