I love some of these new Single Speed bikes out there. So simple, so pure in form and function. Plus, being back in a Bike Shop selling and wrenching again, I like to stay current with the trends in the business.
I am thinking about buying a Bianchi San Jose SS/Fixed. It's a very basic bike, and I'll probably toss on a Carbon Fork and a Brooks saddle on it just to make it more "ME".
I intend to really study my local rides and figure out which gear combo I'll get the best training with. I've always had good legs and a fair cadence so I know once I get my legs under me, that this bike could be a really good training piece and one that would be inexpensive enough to ride this Winter.
I have made too many excuses the past 5-7 years for NOT riding, and now that I am back I want to keep things fresh and think long term with a large dose of stress relief along with a large dose of fun. Another thing to consider is that this will be my first real Road/Cyclocross bike in a long time. I've been on MTB's and Recumbents for the most part since the 80's.
What do you folks think?
