Yep, I'm from Norfolk, VA. I have always retained an interest in cycling but have just recently got myself more involved in my cycling community. There is a large group of fixed gear riders in my neighborhood as it is an "artsy" part of town. I had taken a few rides on my friends fixie and really fell for it. Now my hipster level has reached a new level with my purchase of a somewhat disappointing Motobecane Track Singlespeed.
I new I'd be getting what I paid for with this bike so I am not floored by it's performance. I needed a starter and I got a starter.
I am happy to have found this message board and I look forward in benefitting from the knowledge of much more experienced riders. Thanks for having me!
