Just revived my wifes Windosr The Hour
Pictures assembled to come.
Pretty much a rolling inventory of my spare road parts. The frame is an 80s giant I brushed the paint off of and never got around to repainting and the wheels are the $100 specials off amazon with new tires, freewheel, cog, lockring and axle nuts. I love this thing. I use it more for road training than anything, but it gets moving pretty good.
Whats up everyone. Im hoping one of you can answer this question for me. Need some good, helpful info a.s.a.p (bike sale is pending right now). Searched for hours online and STILL couldn't get a straight answer. Please click link-
Just got my first fixed gear. Felt Brougham with a Sturmey Archer 3 speed internal gear hub.
I learned how to ride fixed while riding it home where i bought it in NYC, all the way to Queens NY. I didn't like not being able to lean into turns and dipping through traffic (pedal hit the ground twice while turning sharp) and I also didn't like the gearing (46/13 fixed). I decided riding fixie simply wasn't for me...so I went to a local bike shop, picked up a 17t freewheel cog. Not as fast top-end anymore, but I love being able to coast while zipping through traffic and at 46/17, Im definitely pedaling more and getting a better work-out.

This all photos of gear bikes are awesome but unfortunately I did not have gear bike because of some financial problem but now I think about buy new gear bike so please suggest me which one is good form me but I will be not costly. So when I buy new Bike than I post photo hear.
I really like Windsors for the price, great first bike and they have upgraded parts from when I had one back in 2006.
