I'm attached to my first fixed bike, and after cleaning it up after the winter I just couldn't get the seatpost to stay. Take it to the shop to borrow their calipers to check the post and seat tube diameters only to find that I've actually crushed the binder trying to get it to stay.
Ever since the guy with the hat at Via in Philly told me he thought the frame was a Pinarello, I've got the idea that my frame is "worth" "something" on top of really liking it. I'm waiting for Marinoni to give me a quote on a cheapo weld job, and Yellow Jersey has a thing where they weld in a thing and machine it out to replace a crushed binder on a lugged frame, but I have a feeling that they'll be way more than I would want to pay when I've just built up a new bike. Especially when this frame cost me thirty bucks and I've got a junky Peugeot in the backyard that could become the backup/rain/take it on the bus down south bike.
But sentimental value and all. Plus pretty.
