Origin8 53/54cm Uno fixed-gear bicycle. New, $550.00

Part# 94750

  • Frame is 4130 double-butted chromoly steel, fork is aluminum alloy.
  • Brakeset: Promax dual-pivot
  • Hubs: KT alumunum
  • Handlebar: Aluminum bullhorn
  • Rear cog: 18-tooth
  • The bike comes set up for 1/8" chain. Both the chainring and the rear fixed cog are 1/8".
  • The rear hub is threaded on both sides with the flip side threaded for a freewheel.

We were asked how fat a tire this bike can accommodate. Here's what we learned:

  • The front will not accommodate a beefy 32c tire like the Vittoria Randonneur.¬†Perhaps someone offers a thinner 32c, or using a 30c. In any case, a normal 28c is about as big as one can expect to fit the forks well.
  • The rear, using the length of chain on it, will accommodate a 32c easily, and by lengthening the chain and mounting the wheel further back in the track dropouts, will allow an even bigger tire.
  • We posted a few pictures of our tire width accommodation testing at the bottom of this post. Or just click here.

Chainstay clearance

Origin8 bicycle

If the chain is lengthened, there is room in the dropout to move the wheel back and gain more clearance.

Like so. We cheated and simply removed the chain for this demonstration.

Resulting in sufficient clearance at the chainstays
