Fiixed Gear Time Trial Raptor

I am Henry from London and this is my fixed wheel time trial bike. The plan was to build a retro looking machine but built with modern components, rather like Ford did with the GT - the car looks like a 60s Ford GT40 race car from a distance but, get up close, and the engineering is far more current.. Hence the choice of a funny-bike frame like time trial bikes from 15-20 years back used, There are some upgrades planned. I will re-post the bike next year when I have made it perfect. I commute 30 miles a day on this bike and it is brutally fast which means it is very rapid but it crashes over bumps in the road and the handling is ultra sensitive. But it is great fun to ride.I love this bike and will keep it forever.
