Putting my fixed gear through the paces this evening, with a touch of dirt.
Easily the cheapest bike that I own, which was free, this bike is quickly becoming my favorite. Push the pedal, the bike moves forward. Want to stop, push the other way. And squeeze the front brake just a touch. Simple bike. And it’s steel.
The simplicity of this bike is completely winning me over. One thing that might be in it’s future could be a new fork. A fork from the likes of Surly, say a Disc Trucker or Straggler, would be pretty awesome.
After tooling around on the dirt for a bit, I was welcomed with this along the path on the return trip:
For quick rides with no real place to be, the fixed gear is the bike that gets the call from the bullpen. Fun bike.
