    j0 from teh dirty south


    hay guys, w0t's going on in this forum?

    hi, my name is victor and i'm a student/commuter living in ATL and attending Georgia Tech. I'm a material science engineering major, so i have a lot to say on the steel vs. aluminum issue i've been commuting since ~January '06. I was turned on to BF by my fellow cycling teammate, skingry.

    About my bike:

    Name: The Ruby Weapon
    Type: Road/Fixie conversion
    Frame: Trek 360, 52mm, blue
    Crank Set: Blue Anodized Tourney, 170mm
    Gear Ratio: 46x16
    Handlebars: SOMA Urban Pursuit, 38mm
    Wheel Set: Velocity Deep V's, blue
    Tires: Michelin Speediums, blue
    Pedals: HTI (stock)
    Front Brake: Affirmative

    Funny story about me and my bike:

    I was riding around a neighborhood in downtown April '06. I hit a pothole that sent me to the hospital and totaled my Trek 360 frame. A few months later my friend, who is a bike mechanic, came across a Trek 360 on Craig's List. Luckily, we ride about the same size bike, and he was gracious enough to give me the frame! A few months and couple of dollars later, I was reunited with The Ruby Weapon v2.0. Needless to say, visited my friend quite a lot in those months.

    It's also funny that I turned it into a fixie conversion because I hated riding fixie the first two times I tried it. Now, I really enjoy the constant feed back and quick response it provides while commuting in traffic. I'm also glad I allowed myself to become accustomed to commuting in and responding to city traffic. I also rode SS for about 6 months prior.


    The original Ruby Weapon, vs. Cloud

    I'm looking forward to being a member of this forum!
