my early seventies, made in England, Falcon, set up as a fixie.
I bought it off eBay already converted to a single speed. Later
I built a fixed wheel for this bike: Miche track hub, Campy Montreal
rim, 14t Phil Wood sprocket (the chainring is 42t, so that gives
me 79.1 gear inches - a bit high for me but fun). The bars are probably
original (very similar to the "Dove" bars sold by Rivendell - and
in fact the blurb on Riv's page does mention that Dove is "very
much like the Falcon bar but made by Nitto of Japan"). I took off
the brake levers and grips that came with the bike, and replaced
those with Dia Compe (I think) road levers and bar tape - and like
that setup (and this bike overall) a lot. Thanks.
