UPDATE:So I'm going through some tough financial times currently (as I'm sure lots of other people are) and it turns out I may have to sell my bike. How much do you guys think I could get for it if I put it on craiglist or something?
So today I bought a fixed gear from a girl at my school who had to sell it off quick, so I picked it up for 50 bucks. My original plan was to sell it on Craigslist for more than that and save up money for a road bike, but since it fit me I decided to give it a spin on my commute.
I love this bike. I thought for sure that a fixed gear would be too weird/hard to commute on (the whole way there is uphill) but I actually found it easier to get up the hill than the last time I tried...I really like that there is nothing to think about, and no way to wimp out...you either ride the bike or you walk. Awesome.
Anyway, I just wanted to share my newfound appreciation for fixed gear bikes...and I'll definitely be keeping this one around for awhile. =)
(And I'll probably put up some picture of it/me riding it as soon as I can get to that.)
