    deal of the century if it's in good shape.

    low miles does not mean good shape.

    just picked up a new jamis, $500, has a san marcos seat and brake hoods which will be going on my road bike after I swap out the drops on this for some horns. Ended up being a dope deal.

    Well done. Enjoy. Also, for every major new thing I buy for my bikes, I try to get one more person on a bike! Spread the stoke

    I finally got the chance to ride today now that schools out. I did my commute to work (2 miles or so) on it over hilly terrain, very fun ride. Tobad my other bullhorns dont fit the stem. Might swap stems til I sell my other bike just to have fun with it. I feel lucky, but now that I see Iro Mark V's on sale I almost feel like I made a mistake.








    P.S i'm getting rid of the bottle holders when I get home.

    i own one, and i am admittedly a total shill...but trust me, at that price you did not make a mistake. i've hung a *lot* of nice parts on mine, and the frame is up to it.

    looks like a totally stock '07 you've got there. have no regrets!

    I really enjoy riding it. Can't do a commute again this week. I'm too busy but it's great even over the massive climbs. Which are easier on a fixie than my road bike. Probably because I have no choice but to grind them out fast.

    why do people saw off brake levers like that? I get that you're only using 1, but it seems really pointless. You're not making the bike look any cleaner, and it's something that, once you notice, you can't stop looking at.

    I don't think it was "sawed off" They make dead levers like that. http://www.bikesomewhere.com/bikesom...4132/20000?g=1

    Yeah, its not my favorite thing in the world. I'm ditching the drops for a pair of Origin 8 black bull horns I found on CL for $17
    I found these are more comfortable then my track drops which I hate riding with, but over all I feel for urban-fixed riding that horns are the most comfortable option, at least for me.
