Blue, Aqua, Orange and Silver... My first build, second fixie. I spent all freaking summer learning about bikes and getting the parts off Craigslist--the frame was the coolest addition: I originally acquired a 60cm Rob Roy frame, only to trade it for a completely new special edition Angus--at no cost. I built the front wheel myself and owe much thanks to Zinn's bike book, Quad Bikes, and Cambridge Bike shop for advice:) These days, every kid with a couple hundred bucks has a skittles colored bike... I am trying to keep things classy. Look for some deeeeeep high polish rims and phil wood in the future... if I can every make some money:)

UPDATE: finally got around to adding new wheels and cranks. Bike is heavier than before, but stiff as all get out!

Until it gets stolen, watch for me on the streets of Cambridge and Boston--and know that the blue streak you saw was "Aaron's Bike" passing by.

Bravo Blue

First comment: Craigslist and Ebay are the tools for building, wouldn't you agree? Support your LBS local bike shop by paying for labor or at the least, bro dealing with a Marley Jay or six pack of kind brew.

Roger that!
