Cool interview with Mike Chacon in Venice, showing off his freestyle riding fixed gear bike. Enjoy…
For 12 humid hrs, the streets of St.pete were filled with racers competing to see who could complete the most laps on a 14.7mile course.. There were some impressive lap times being put up.. just breaking 41min lap times. The overall turn out was good considering the sketchy weather and horrible heat. They had 12 4 man teams.. actually 11- 4 man teams and a 3 man team that held their own finishing 6th with only 3 riders ( Ryan Magin, Joe Badessa and Billy Crupp). Top honors went to 352 Racing Bike & More for the 4 man team bracket, local shop 66 Fixed 2 man team took home 1st place and Eric Stubbs took first place in the individual bracket with an impressive 15 laps completed.. We cross our fingers this even comes back next year with more riders and sponsors.. It was a great event and great turn out.. enjoy the photo’s and congrats to all the racers and winners!

Interesting setup for a fixed gear bike includes smurf speed drive gear with a timing belt from Gates. This is industrial belt with a bigger sprocket. These belts used for example on Harley Davidson bikes.

Here is an interesting quad fixed prototype.
“It was only a matter of time ‘till we put pen to paper & drafted up the first ever Quad Fixed frame. What you see here is #1 of one. Strictly prototype & still in the development stage. This frame was handed off to Marwin “The Wizard” Ou last night. Marwin will be riding & testing it on the streets & skateparks of the LBC in the coming months. We have not yet decided if we will bring the Quad Fixed frame into SE’s 2012 line of bikes. So for now, just consider it our little pet project. If you like what you see, keep an eye out on the SE website (www.SEBIKES.com) and SE’s Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/SEBIKES) for the frame’s progress.”
