I blew my knee out in Iraq and found that riding Fixed Gears was entirely too painful so I set out to build my "dream bike."

I think I did it with this one. It's by far the favorite out of my fleet of bicycles. From the way it rides, to the coaster brake, all the way down to the Green/Black color scheme; I love this bike. No cost was spared on this build because I knew I wanted to keep it for a long time. The coaster brake is super fun and works perfectly, so much so that I don't know why more people don't use them on these bikes. I hate the look of brakes and cables and levers so I wanted to keep the look of a Fixed Gear with the ability to still let my knee take a break from motion if it got sore during a ride. I have tried to think of ways to improve on it since I originally built this but haven't been able to think of a single way (besides maybe adding some white pinstriping or other aesthetic improvements).

Not much else to say about it. The bike speaks for itself. It truly is a mean green machine.

Let me know what you think. Shout out to my man Braden at Carytown Bicycle Co in Richmond, VA for helping me put this baby together.

(The Chrome/White Bianchi Pista is the bike I had before this one. It was Fixed Gear and my buddy wanted it so I sold it and used to money towards the Cinelli build)
