hey y'all- from chicago/baltimore here...embarking on the fixie fix
i'm steve from chicago, il, usa (originally from baltimore, md, usa). i've been riding regularly on the streets of chicago for the past two years on a lemond road bike. i kinda dumped a bunch of money on it to begin with, and have realized that simple may in fact be better! today i bought a nice raleigh frame with horizontal drop-outs so i can try to fix myself a fixie.
hopefully all goes well! if anyone around wants to give me some help, i'd love it. otherwise, wish me luck, and i look forward to reading and helping when i can!
