This is my favorite bike. I just got interested in fixed gear bikes in the summer of 2006 and began to select components for a few months after that. When all the pieces arrived, I couldn't stop riding it (even in the house). I use it to commute 12.5 miles each day, plus errands and joy rides. The frozen pond photos are taken by my house on Highlands Lake in Edina, Minnesota.

Edina eh? My girlfriends

Edina eh? My girlfriends uncle lives there and it is nice as fuck. I'm assuming some hockey gets thrown down on that pond come winter time haha.

Love the lake photos. I used to ride past there all the time!

pugsley...

should be your next build for frozen pond riding!

Paul Crank.. niiice...

Just what I've been dreaming to put on my Steamroller when I build it up. Shame I'm gonna be looking at close enough to $USD 300 by the time I get one shipped to Australia :( and that's still without the recommended Campy b/bracket.

Minnesota native myself, on a realy cold day I ride my bike in the house too.

I wiped out at Harriet

I wiped out at Harriet Island doing that last Christmas.

It was sooo worth it.

crasy to me

those Paul cranks are crazy wonderful, do you have back problems or do you have wrist issues. that's the only justification I can figure out for the bars and the headset spacers. I'm not talkin smack I'm just confused.
