Cannondale R800 conversion fixed gear

I bought this old R800 from 1994 and converted it into a fixed gear bike. It's great to ride, very agile and responsive. Perfect for urban riding. It's also lightweight : 6.3kg !

Cannondale R800 allumium 6061, from 1994, handmade in the USA T.54

Zeus carbon fork

Crankset/Bottom Bracket:
Shimano 105 in 42t / Dura-Ace BB 7700

Shimano SPD M520

White Industries 16t cog

Cinelli Mash bulhorn / ITM carbon

San Marco Replica Racing / Carbon selcof

Front Wheel/Hub/Tire:
Mach1 made from magnesium (f***** light!) 20 spokes radial

Rear Wheel/Hub/Tire:
Mach1 mounted with White Industries Eno eccentric hub 28 spokes / Hutchinson Intensive2 25c

More Info:
Tips : the Hutchinson Intensive2 25c is, for me, the best tire ever for fixed gear bikes! Extremely resistant to skidding, last 10 times longer than everything I've tried so far!

This would be even more perfect if it was still a road bike.
