On a quest
Well, it's official. I'm on a fixed gear quest.
It was to be my fathers day gift.. but the Ebay guy I posted about just didn't work out. (He basically kind of P!$$ed me off, he's been recommended by a lot of people, so I'm sure he sells a good product, I'll just chalk it up to a personality thing between him and I).
So Sunday I tooled around two thrift shops. I found an older Sears fram (and bike) for 20 dollars, but there was rust where the frame was molded to gether (the tubing, I don't know the term). And the rims were shot. I would like it to be ridable right off, and I can replace rims etc as I get the $ set aside.
I also hit a garage sale, almost picked up a nice Fuji bike, however, I over heard the home owner talking about "the accident June had on the bike". Looking closer, there were problems.
Soooooo.. I'm a hunting. Gonna build my own.
