    I was itching to try out my new setup, but it...

    Nope! Even at home, my phone stays on silent unless I'm expecting some kind of important call, and stays that way while I'm riding. I really have nothing that important to say.

    The ebay bike looks kind of scary. I'm not convinced that it's even a fixed gear - it lists that it has a 14 tooth freewheel, but doesn't say anything about the cog or the type of hub on the rear...
