I'm James, 24, from Bristol, UK. I study illustration and create children's picture books. I'm recently mad about cycling - I needed something to get me away from being hunched over my desk for hours on end! I currently own a pretty crude fixie, but it's got a bit scary too often, and it doesn't help my posture. So, on Monday I'm receiving a beautiful dutch single speed that's the brightest thing I've ever seen. I can't wait!!!
I look forward to posting and meeting you all :)

We'll need photos of your new bike when you get it. Say, have you any links to some of your artwork?
Welcome to BikeForums :D .

I'm not sure where I'm going to post photos of my bike. It's a little unusual but not THAT weird, and I'm using it to commute on, but only a short distance...too many options!!!
My website is in the works, you can have a sneaky peek at my (award winning, haha) first picture book here: http://outsidetownpress.blogspot.com (http://outsidetownpress.blogspot.com/)

You can either post it here, or perhaps in the Utility Cycling forum?
Nice, you have your own publishing company (and the book looks quite darling :D )!

I lived in Clifton 50 yrs ago. There are too many steep hills in Bristol and around for a single speed. I used to ride my 3 sp over the Mendips to go caving around Priddy.

I find it fine, my route to uni is all flat, the one to the supermarket is the same, and the only really long cycles i do are to Bath, which is again really flat. It's fine on my fixie, and I move to London soon anyway.
