    Love my new Schwinn Madison

    Just bought my first single speed...this is fun! Hit the Performance site ans saw they were $455., then applied a coupon code for additional 10% off. Printed the page, went to my local Performance shop, and they gave me additional "rebate" off of $50....how damn sweet is that!

    Inaugural ride in fixed gear yesterday...wow, there is a learning curve and now have great respect for you fixie riders..especially in traffic. More riding is on for today, but think I'll switch the hub over to freewheel. Initial thoughts on bike: smooth as butter, silent, excellent riding position, Selle seat killed my ass, paint and chrome is flawless, a well thought out bike...good job Schwinn.

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    +1000! Did you get the blue? or were you lucky enough to find the yellow? or black?
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    yea, the seat is certainly no fun, but the rest of the bike is! I really need a new saddle for mine. Congrats on the new bike
