As I’m counting down my holiday with my family to Gran Canaria, I saw this new video by Patrick. After watching this, I won’t sleep till that date comes. His riding videos is always one of the best to me, you always see him challenging himself.

Hello From KamalRB!

Hello everyone my names Kamal and I’m the newest member of FixedGearLondon, I just thought I’d introduce myself and give a little insight into my life on bikes. Firstly thanks to all the guys from FGL for welcoming me and allowing me to be a part of everything you do! I’ve been riding fixed for the last 6 years and I starting out with a crappy off the peg single speed I have since covered pretty much every style of fixed gear bike from freestyle, NJS and a brief weekend trial of a lopro (my back can’t hack it). I’m 20 years old and I’ve lived in West London my whole life although I’m all over London cycling and also cover most of the city for work as well.

My current stable consists of only two track bikes; the first is my Brooklyn Machine Works Gangsta Track V2 which is one of my top favourite fixed gears ever. I’ve restored it to a degree from a rattle canned black beater into a bright green beast. I recently managed to get a hold of a V1 fork from BMW as part of their latest production run which I’ve always wanted. I love the Gangsta because it’s bomb proof and so versatile.

My other bike is a GT GTB, another one of my top five, which was rawed by a previous owner and looks MEAN. I’ve always loved the triple triangle frame (this is my second) and mine has a steel columbus fork which I think suits the frame more than the standard (although I’m on the lookout for a Wound Up 😉 hint hint). It’s a comfortable bike but still more than capable when i want to put my head down and go fast, which is the reason I bought it.

Now that the bikes are out of the way a bit more into my background; essentially if it rolls on two wheels I want to know how to fix it and I’ll have a go at riding it. I spent the last two years working for one of the big UK bike retailers which gave me an endless pool of experience but took up a lot of my free time and slowed down my riding. I’ve recently moved into mechanic work which is a lot more enjoyable and a lot less time consuming, so this summer I’m hoping to spend a lot more time working on and riding my bikes!

I’m always up for talking about bikes, feel free to give me a shout if you see me about on the road and I hope to see a load of you guys out on a ride soon. -KamalRB

Ride and Pizza

with one comment

As my mate goes back to japan after being here for just 10month’s studying , wanted to show him one more time around London Town with some good mates and to get some BIG pizza at Mulberry pizza place! It was a cold day but had some fun on the road with these guys. Went by Brick lane to see the market stalls, went to the side of the river then to battersea then Nothing hill, ending up at Queens way for some pizza.
