What road bike do you have?

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

What road bike do you have?

Fixed gear = road bike (unless it's got risers )

I was a little as well but the C50 isn't the lightest bike around and the Moots is 6/4 SL so I guess that did it.

Poor confused child, you're such a rebel aren't you? Nobody understands you except those wacky bike messenger types. Yaaaawwwwwnnnn.

I like the bike - but lose the spoke cards. They make you look like a dork.

I just like the irony of it all. It's only supposed to be a commuter bike though.

"irony" is an official hipster-fixie term. maybe it wasn't the right section of BF after all. remove the gears and return home.
