  • Intersection Bike Project: Step 2

    Reported by Yorgo Tloupas, 8 May 2009, 11:01 AM

    A while ago I previewed some details of the Intersection Magazine fixed-gear bike. The process has been way slower than I wished, and we finally got a first batch of bikes in recently. Lost of details still need to be fixed (no pun intended), but it’s a good base to work from.

    Our steel track frame is a low-pro, but has a comfy geometry, and is coupled with a strong fork, with just enough clearance for bar-spins (not that I intend to indulge in this kind of foolish activity). We added gussets for strength near the head-tube, and threw in a private joke on the hubs…

    We’re already working on a revised version, with longer dropouts, less toe overlap, a better logo, and a few other improvements.

    Yes you can do pseudo-BMX tricks with it:

    And my favorite bit – avid readers of Intersection will understand this:
