Brad Hodges of Nemesis Project has been making frames for as long as I’ve known him. Whether its dirt jump 26″ MTB or bmx bikes, Nem-Pro bikes known for being solid as all get out. He’s been doing more fixed gear stuff lately, and with his BMX background, 26″ fixed gear freestyle has been a logical progression and fusion of what’s he’s been doing. I’ve wanted a frame from Brad for a long time, and I finally went for it, and had him build me a go-fast track frame. He showed up at my place of employment, my new frame strapped to his huge pack. And riding this thing.
There’s something about a chrome bike that makes me want to go out a lay down a fat skid. Maybe it is just me, but seeing all that chrome brings back memories.
Brad’s notoriously horrible about keeping his web presence up to date, or even functional, and I’m a lousy fake journalist, so I don’t even remember much about the specs of this thing at the moment. In fact, although I made him stop so I could get a shot of it, I totally spaced getting detail shots, so I had to steal one from his Facebook page for this post. We’re heading out to his workshop in Sacramento in a few weeks, so expect more details about this bike and my new track bike project soon.
