I bough a new bike a few months ago: a fixed gear. After a week of getting used to it, it feels great. It feels like being connected to the ground: it’s easy to adjust your speed, most of the time there’s no-need for brakes: you can slow down with just the pedals. I’m going to keep the brakes on for a little while, better be safe than sorry ;)

I still have my old bike. It’s going to be my “rainy days” bike. I plan on converting it to fixed gear sometime after this summer.

I’ve been looking for a cheap track frame to replace my old road frame. I found this one for $169.
