    Relevant? No, but good illustration shouldn't be passed on.

    yeah, you have an urbanite, right? I would have remembered that.

    11:30am tomorrow at Moonbean.

    I saw a cute girl riding a nice super clean fixie with a chopped straight bar and stubby bar ends today. Just thought that was worth mentioning.

    My girlfriend wants me to build her a fixie now. This has been my plan for some time, but I didn't want to bring it up myself because it makes me feel like kind of a perv in some strange way. I got a wierd kick out of her riding my bike down the street for some reason. That and I hate adjusting the brakes and gears on her hybrid. Not that I'd get her going brakeless anyways... I'll stop rambling now.

    Anyways, now I'm in the market for a 55-56cm road frame or bike to fix up for her. She wants it in pink too, so I may have to do a repaint unless I'm lucky.

    I'll be at moon bean at 11:40 tommorrow just to be fashionable.

    Now I just need to get her rock climbing, smoking pot and playing warhammer 40,000 (all of which she has expressed interest in funnily enough).

    If life is a 2 way street though that means I'll have to start doing yoga, spinning classes and learn to study like a monster. I suppose I could be worse off

    edit: my bike is going to be pimped
    Cyclops hand made columbus zona track frame
    Chris King headset
    Nitto Jaguar alloy stem
    Nitto B123 39cm bars
    Thomson Elite seatpost
    Selle San Marco rolls black perf. saddle
    Phil Wood bottom bracket
    Sugino 75 cranks
    MKS Sylvan pedals
    Shadow Conspiracy Interlock V1 chain
    Level fix/fix hubs
    Mavic CXP33 rims

    100% silver except for the fruity gold that lives on Rolls saddles

    The problem about getting a frame for her is she is pretty tall and has an 89cm inseam, but as a girl she has a shorter torso, meaning that although her legs could fit a 56-57, I should probably go smaller to accomadate her arms. Thanks for the offer anyways though! I will probably be wearing army pants tomorrow, along with my yellow black and silver bike jacket with a colourful UTW messenger bag.

    heya, shiznaz, were you at urbane in the afternoon today?
    I saw a guy riding a purpleish cyclops track frame on my way out of the shop.
    looks EXACTLY like the one in your picture.
    thought THAT was worth mentioning

    and 32flavours thanks a bundle for the citristrip.
    some dude thought it was my carrot juice.
    physics hertz.

    I recall him saying it was hideous, and the owner of said purple bike did make a post on this thread.

    Hey Shiznaz, Keith had a really nice, really pink Miele about that size (maybe a 54 or 55) at Cavern Cycles a while ago, don't know if he sold it or not.
