Gonna be sweeeeeet
As you can see no snow, I have the handlebar as far as it would go, probably need to push the saddle up may be an inch. It fitted very well. I set it up singlespeed, fixed gear can wait.
I put the as supplied pedals on to get going, big mistake. The right one semi seized on me after a few miles. I knew I should have junked them. the only thing I can think of is that backed away when I back pedalled and did not tighten up.
I have chain tugs coming, not really needed.
Water Bottle cage to put on.
Phone strap to put on.
Saddle yet to decide. Brooks seems the obvious.
Pedals I have but realistically I want walking friendly type that I do not currently have.
I got something in the works.
I've always loved the look of Cannondales. Awesome looking bike.
After over 40 years of freewheeling, I decided to try a fixed. Enter the Fyxation Eastside. Nothing too expensive. Just good enough to tell me if this is the direction I want to head.
Cream is a good bike color.
love those araya rims
Nice collection, esp. the Bob. Wowza.

Replaced the OEM Bianchi saddle that was totally torn up with my Tioga Spyder, which is a butt torture rack. Also, geared down to 46 x 17 for street use.
The seat post height was solely determined by me getting my leg almost fully extended at the end of the pedal stroke. Just a quick starting point. Moving the seat back and forth may change that a bit, but I don't expect it to change too much. I'm only 5' 10" tall but have wicked long legs (34" inseam) and a short upper body. It makes it hard to find a bike that fits me perfectly. I opted for the 55cm frame, as my arms might not have been long enough for the 58cm frame and bullhorns. Hopefully, when all is said and done, I won't end up with a giant stack of headset spacers.
Rear breaks are soon to go also. I don't see myself ever running single speed on the Fyxation. I already have plenty of bikes with freewheels.
