B'Twin Hoptown 5 RACING Ed Limitée Modified Folding Bike Fixed Gear

B'Twin Hoptown 5 RACING Ed Limitée after 9 months of owning modified to actually be somewhat racey with some bits off ebay. Weighs about 9.4kg with Duranos.

 

Its currently in fixed gear 56/14 which is about 73gi and can spin over 25mph easily. (In picture it is in single speed just before I rebuilt the wheel on a fixed hub).

 

I commute about 10 miles with this bike everyday and as I live on the top floor of my flat it lives in the boot of my car .

 

Reasonably light and responsive although the ride can be a bit harsh and not quite as refined as my other bikes but unusually quick for this type of bike.

 

Runs various tyres through the year including Marathon Plus 1.75, Kojaks 1.35 and Duranos 1.1 as shown.
