I've made a few changes from the stock spec to make the bike more appropriate for hill climbs.

Nicobar's bicycle diaries And it is in this little town at the foot of the Swiss Alps that Esow Alban, 17, from the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, made history on 16 August by becoming the first Indian to win a medal at a global cycling event-he lost out on gold by 0.017 seconds.

The Red Hook Crit Announcer Wants Bike Racers That Aren’t Boring AF I love fixed gear crits, and it's a really great venue. The fans in Milan are very enthusiastic-and we have at least 20,000 at that one. What do you think the appeal of the Red Hook Crit is? It looks like brakeless chaos.
