    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..."

    I may check that out...I've had scheduling conflicts with all the other alley cats I've seen advertised, but this one looks like it might work.

    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...

    First, the pavement through the park is terrible and often slick with moss. Then you have to take a hard right onto a sidewalk that is overgrown with branches and strewn with debris. Then you have...

    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.

    Nothing in this study leads me to believe that the potential risks (which may not even be related to cycling) outweigh the health benefits of cycling.

    I just rode to that REI this weekend (from the REI in Tyson's, actually, which didn't have what I needed). I would avoid Columbia Pike, and as much of Carlin Springs as possible...that said, if you...

    They were there for a BBQ or something and I came on them as they were leaving. They drove off toward the trail exit at 9th Rd/Lexington on the south side of 66.
