Hello,

Find attached my Tom Board fixed wheel urban assault bike. Originally constructed for me by Tom Board (now retired) about fifteen years ago as an expedition (multi speed) touring ATB. Used it extensively in Europe, Turkey and Morocco.It features a mélange of Reynolds 531 and a sweet forged Cinelli fork crown. The frame is fillet braised all round and features hand cut semi-lugs on the head tube. I had speced Campagnolo track ends for strength which allowed me to give it a second incarnation as a fixed. I like the flip flop hub but I have never used it (flipped it). As you can see I favor an upright riding style. One day when I have it re-painted I will have all the non-fixed braise on's removed for an even cleaner look.

Thanks,

Michael
