The Viking

The Viking is sleek and black and mean. If you want a nippy singlespeed or fixed commuter this is the ticket. Brand new steel track frame, forks and bars. New headset and bottom bracket. Flip flop hub on the rear wheel so you can go fixed but at the moment it’s set up as a singlespeed with front and back caliper brakes.

Not much to say about it really, it’s a pretty simple build. The handlebars are quite shallow so you can ride in the drops without too much lean, although it’s a pretty big frame. Aero brakes fitted to the bar ends as a result. Nice leather sports saddle, 700 wheels with 23c slick tyres. Guides for rear brake cable and bosses for two water bottle cages. Track fork ends on the back. No nonsense.
