Picked up my new Steiger from Primate today and took it for a spin, rides like a dream! Single speed set up this time, (as opposed to fixed) I forgot how nice it is zooming around corners without the niggling fear you may take yourself out with the pedal hitting the road (or is that just me?) It’s also nice going down a hill without having to pedal like a circus monkey
I bought the Gipiemme wheel set as is (“stacked at the back for a single pack” ), Sugino cranks, Dura Ace headset and brakes. The gear ratio is 46/16 although I’m used to 42/16, what a difference it makes! Great on the flat, but going uphill, what a thigh killer! I can definitely get a bit more pace up overall, and maybe I need to ride it for a while longer, but so far my fixie still feels smoother to ride.
