Have had this brown monster in the kitchen, waiting for me to get around to messing with it. Well, was so enthused by my success with the Motobecane, I got started on the Collegiate, and have it running as a single speed. It's a fun ride, not one I'd commute on, but a nice around towner thing.
I was actually seeing how many bikes I have that I could give a friend. He runs a 1/2-way house for adolescent males, I have 14 bikes, and live in a bike shop, so I was thinning the herd.
