Thanks for the great pictures and site. Inspired by what I've seen, I decided to fixx myself one too.
My Giant CFR started life in '95 with a 105 groupset. These aluminium lugged straight gauge carbon tube frames were pretty hot at the time as the Australian Institute of Sport used them for their training bikes (so the story went anyway). I added the Spinergy's for the PBP in '99. The next morph was in '01 when most of the 105 group was swapped for DA/Ultegra, and the standard (heavy aero) carbon fork was swapped for the Profile AC. Easton supplied the post and the bars. The Easton bars are great; very springy and gentle on the hands.
What's trick about the fixxer conversion? Choosing 43x16 means that the chainstays only had to be filed by about 0.5mm. The Surly Fixxer matches nicely with the Spinergy hub, but there is a little box cutter carving of extra metal on both parts necessary. Getting both brake levers to pull the front calliper meant converting a giro upper cable housing by drilling it out enough to pass both cable inners, and putting a star washer under the clamp stops them slipping.
