Brooklyn Machine Works Gangsta

My modified Gangsta, with a shorter fork (15mm) giving it a steeper headtube, but the extra rake (45mm over the original 35mm) gave it a very stable but nimble feel, greatest fixed wheel road bicycle I've ever own, very stiff like an alu frame and surprisingly comfortable to ride, even on a century ride. I also got rear brake and rack mount brazed on by a local framebuilder. Weight: 8.8kg (19.4lbs).

I'll stick with normal clincher, tubular clincher is a horrible combination.
