    It's Just Not Right.....

    So I busted my fixie last week and I really dislike driving to work, so I dug out some old cranks, a 46 tooth ring and some slicks and made my single a 71 gear inch UAV (Urban Assault Vehicle). I discovered right away that it just is not the same. Not only was I running about 76 gear inches on the fixie, the whole thing felt sluggish, and cumbersome on the streets. The fixie was far quicker, more supple and responsive. I guess I need to find a new frame pretty quick, cause this is going t get old fast. I love my single, but she belongs in the dirt.

    New question here. so what's the frequency, k?

    will it be door number 1 (surly x-check) or door number 2 (soma double-cross)? what's the holdup?

    p.s. if you buy it from The Path it will be extra-special.

    Oh, it's bound to be extra special if i go the surly, it will probbably be from The Path, but there is also door number 3, the On-One Il Pompino. Talked with the PlanetX guys at SO. They had a ti one there and were waiting for new stock on the steel.

    what to do, what to do
