Volunteered my time at the bike kitchen and got an SE Draft frame. Built up over a month.

Frame is done up in sf muni livery with custom cut vinyl stickers and clear coated with 2k urethane.

BB shell is for one-piece cranks, so an adapter is installed to run standard 68mm english cranks.

Front brake runs behind the fork (it's designed to). The brake cable runs inside the steerer tube, through the stem and handlebars to the brake lever which has an internal cable exit. It's possible to barspin with a brake with this setup! (not that i'm going to, but nice to know)

p.s. this is my first fixed gear

Howzit ride for ya? I just found a complete draft (not sure of the year, though) on craiglist for . I'm aware of their crap reputation, but I figure since I'm just getting started, I don't need anything too flashy for my first fixie. Plus, if I'm really not feeling it, I'm thinking I could re-sell it for more than .

oh and p.s. your bike looks like sex. gives me real hope for mine.

thanks, dude its def a boat

thanks, dude
its def a boat anchor (8lbs frame alone) uphill/against wind/from stops
although, once it gets going, it feels like any other steel bike

its one of the few frames that will be nearly impossible to dent due to the super thick steel tubing they used. great beater frame

front brake detail

thanks for the comments!

closeups of the brake setup added!
the brake cable housing comes from inside the steerer tube and makes its way around to behind the fork where the caliper is mounted.

this isn't an original design, but a first for fixies, afaik!
stolen from time trial bikes, namely the 2010 giant tcr trinity sl.

the front brake is similar to a v-brake/cantilever design so it is side-pull.
modulation isn't as good as most dual and single pivot designs.
currently running standard brake housing, will switch to nokon housing (less compression, better modulation)

Hey how or where did you get that front brake lever setup? I was thinking of replacing my road bars with bullhorns and I want that location of a brake lever. Thanks

They're called

aero brake levers. Just make sure you get the kind for bullhorns and not drops, and make sure they fit your bar size
