Big O's (and little Mike's) candy

Could this be NZ's most abused fixie? Owen certainly gives his Langster a good workout, riding it everywhere from the city streets to some off-road jaunts! He just added the retro-stylee fenders, with some modifications to make them fit, i.e. filing off the lawyer tabs on the fork and spacing the axle to allow the gaurd to fit under the brake, and leaving enough room at the back to get the wheel out in case of a flat (which happens a bit from his skid stops). Check out the seatpost height... how tall are you now Owen, 7'2", 7'3"?
Mike has just started working with us, and he commutes on this retro SS roady. He didn't know it's origin, but I recognised the frame from the earkly 90's as a SR Sakae Litage.

Hey Brett, thanks for not publishing my ratio. I'm going to need another month or two riding up the hills to our house before I get into a man's gearing.

Might be related to Freemo with a seat hwight like that!

Yeah, probably just a touch taller than Freemo, just as skinny!

Oh yeah, Mike's gearing is 42/16! Sorry mate... and O's is 48/17, real man's gearing!

Hey Owen, Satan probably wants his fixie back soon; maybe you should put the seat down for him, give it a wipe down and try to stop abusing it a little.
