Fixed rider in San Francisco, CA
I love reading this site so I decided to finally join. I ride two bikes, around town I ride my fixed gear. It's an early 80's or late 70's Falcon, red. It's rusting all over the place, which is cool because I don't think anyone will try to take it. I use a Phil Wood track hub, which is soooooo much better than the Suzue I used to have on there. I stripped the threads off the lockring on the Suzue, which becomes a little dangerous to ride when you can't slow down because your gear keeps spinning off. The Phil Wood is awesome, it has a beautiful ride, and I highly recommend.
I also have a 2001 Fuji cross, built for speed. I take this on longer rides, 50 miles+, and I am working towards being ready for some century rides. I love steel bikes and this one is Reynolds 853. I may upgrade to titanium in a little while, but we'll see.
