    Tonight's commute ended in a long shop session...did my first square taper BB install (2nd BB install overall) and it seems to have worked without a hiccup. I really wanted to ditch the square taper...

    I test rode (and eventually bought) bikes at Freshbikes, and they basically said "see you whenever you feel like coming back." I was astounded by how hands-off they were with the test-ride process...

    I was lusting after this today. The configurable dropout design lets you run geared or SS/FG with skewers...really innovative.

    I think there are two issues with chain line, although I don't claim super expertise....first, the straighter the chain line, the more efficient the drivetrain and the less wear on components. I...

    Brakes, brake hoods/shifters (you can use "brifters" on a FG, you just don't run shifter cables), bars, stem, seatpost, saddle, front wheel, tires, tubes. At a minimum, you'd need a SS/FG-specific...

    Basically agree with all this. I built my Cinelli from the ground up and it probably ended up being cheaper than buying a complete build (which for Cinellis are practically non-existent). I bought...

    It's a 55 with a 55cm top tube. You ride SPDs, right? The pedals on it are SPD/platforms, but foot retention is pretty critical for riding fixed.

    The part I'm waiting on (bottom bracket)...

    I should also add that you're more than welcome to take my State for a long test ride once it's rebuilt (probably next week, waiting for a new bottom bracket), just to get a taste for riding fixed. ...

    Love mine. Although they generally aren't rated as high, security-wise, as U-locks, the folding locks are much easier to carry around in a backpack or messenger bag, and are sufficiently secure for...

    Saw a Langster in my office bike rack this morning, set up properly as a fixed gear, and thought "too bad One-Eighth isn't here..."

    The fun and aesthetic pleasure of riding a "clean" (no rack or fenders) road bike, for me, greatly outweighs most utility concerns. I used to commute solely on my rack'd and fender'd bike with a...

    Well, drivers are legally required to yield to trail users at a crosswalk, so it's definitely 1. The stop sign on the MUP requires trail users to come to a complete stop before entering the...

    Welcome! Depending on where exactly you live, you can also drop down Quincy to the Custis. It's a little easier than Lorcom and avoids the obnoxious Custis trail-entry point at Thrifton Hills.
