This is my commuter bike, its not much but its mine so im happy. i would like a smaller gearing.....i like going up hills. used to have it with the gears but i got tired of dealing with broken derailleurs so i went fixed. it has been fun.

Update 7/29/10. this bike was stolen as of the 24th of this month. it gets me mad and depressed that i wont get this bike back.especially in Los Angeles. Such a nice bike i had.

People who friended this bike CONDENADO, jas0nkyle, FixedGearFix, PHANTOM, veloantigua


Sorry to hear about the loss man, you say the bike isn't much but it obviously is to you, there's a lot of people with pro spec carbon titanium adamantium kryptonite bikes who wouldn't nearly be as bummed as you if their bikes got stolen, simply because a. they don't ever ride anyway or b. they're just rich kids who'll just buy a brand spankin new bike.
So will you build a new bike? Liked the look of this one a lot.

ahh yeah. their trash is my

ahh yeah. their trash is my gold=)I 100%loved this bike more then my Pista. I had put my time into it and the parts it had were just special to me. maybe because i rode it thru everything;rain, dirt,sludge,mountains,downtown,the sand in the beach.if i ever try to redeem this bike, it will be thru a properly built road or touring bike as this was a touring frame( at least in the catalog)
and yeah im slowly starting on a new build. my pista will change ever so slightly starting with the seat.=).
