    possibly my first fixed gear

    http://newyork.craigslist.org/mnh/bik/83730018.html


    ok, so after riding road bikes for a few years and then learning about the interesting world of fixed gears, i think i might take the plunge tonight and buy one. its listed about, but i wanted some feedback from the knowledgeable folk on this forum, if that price seems alright and if that seems like a good starter bike for a noob. Ive ridden fixed gears once before(just this weekend) and while im not throwing out my road bike, im just looking to broaden my bicycle horizons. thanks much.

    better buy it now, it's sure to go fast on CL.

    if you're thinking about it, just follow thru and get it. you won't be sorry.
    also, if you hate it you can sell it back on CL in a snap.

    What are they doing? Why do they come here? Some kind of instinct. Memory, of what they used to do. This was an important place in their lives.

    If the dude seems sketchy, do yourself a favor and paint it after you buy it.

    So did you get it? for that price, I'd get it just for the components.

    Anyone else have a wheelet, crank, brake, bars, in decent shape for $200 they'd be willing to sell me? I have an extra frame sitting around dying to be built up.
