Our new Street Dog shares the same fast and nimble geometry as the Roadie, but with horizontal, track style dropouts and 120mm rear spacing for single speed hubs. The new design places the rider in an aggressive road position, and is compensated for the use of threadless stems. Waterford exclusive butted tube sets, featuring True Temper OX Platinum and Reynolds 853 air-hardening steel alloys, custom drawn to our rigorous specs. New asymmetrical D section chainstays provide rigidity along with generous chainring and tire clearance. Tubeset specifications vary by frame size to offer riders of all sizes the strength and stiffness they need.
Weaknesses: None I can think of. Paint can chip easily, but simple to touch up with auto paint touch up brush from Pep Boys.
Road Dog, black frame, built up with Salsa drop bars, Tecktro front & real brakes, Sugino front cranks and chain ring, Shimano bb and rear single speed flip-flop hub. I alway use the freewheel side--I'm a wuss when it comes to riding a fixie.
Bike Setup: My bike shop had this one on the shelf for couple of years. Nobody out here in central NJ knows what to do with a track -- lbs owner told me I was the first to even look at it. Gave me a great deal to clear it out.
I recently bent the dropout on my Gunnar Street Dog fork, and was hoping someone would have a suggestion for a replacement. I think the particulars are:
1" steerer tube
45-55mm reach for brakes
eyelets for fender attachments
43-45mm rake (approximately)

Am thinking of my first fixed gear being the Street Dog. Anyone have any experience on this frame? Carbon or steel fork? Bike is to be used to train during the off season for road racing. Is it best to use road or mtn. pedals? Have thought about the Candy Eggbeaters which I use on my cross bike ... Read More »
I've had bike lust for a fixte (along with many other types, but this thread is about the fixte) and have been looking at options running from a new Pista to a build up on a Surley with scavenged components.
Then, an irresistable opportunity arose on my visit to "Latest Ads" a few days ago.

I'm looking for some fenders to put on my Gunnar Street Dog. The clearance looks pretty tight, but should be doable. Does anyone who's put some fenders on tight-clearance bikes have any suggestions? The tightest spot looks like the rear brake bridge, as there's ~1/2" of space between the tire and ... Read More »
