Will finally be riding fixed again...
The surgery to get my Monocog into fixed gear didn't work out as well as I planned so I threw the freewheel back on and sold it to finance my next bike: a Surly Long Haul Trucker.
After the incident with my fat ass breaking my Langster I decided that I didn't want to take chances on a Steamroller; "give me the crudest, heaviest, strongest frame that can be bought for under $500." Luckily I got one second hand for $300. Currently the frame is getting modified for horizontal drop outs as well as getting ready to be blasted with a fresh coat of what I'd like to call 'baby poo brown' - not that Surly's 'exorcist pea soup puke' wouldn't also scare away would be thieves..
The cheap crap left over from the dead Langster will be transferred over for a truly gr00vy ride.
Look forward to posting some pictures as well as riding with you guys when it's said and done.
