my new singlespeed!!!!
Added a second horse to the stable recently.....been riding my fixie Bianchi Pista for almost a year....took a few miles to get used to the 32x16 gears, fattie knobbies, and Avid disc brakes!!
made my first commute today..14 miles or so round trip..I am hurtin'!!
guess it didn't help that my tires were a measley 35 PSI...Ill have to bump that up for commuting, and lower again for..hmm..trials?? singletrack?? hehehe..
whats up with the wind today in chi-town? wasn't it supposed to be warmer and nice?? sheesh!!
That looks like a monster for communting. Why not switch out the knobbies for some slicks?
the way we get by
Yea! No s##t! I had my first commuting ride this morning and it was raining or at least misting despite the damn Chicago forecaster's report.

Was also my first SS commute and it was great! even if my front tire rubbed and I had to clean off tire shavings when I got to work!
it IS a monster...I'll be switching out for slicks, soon..my cruising speed has gotta get up there somehow..
gearing is too low, too..gonna get that fixed up soon...
