So, you may remember that I just sold two bikes. Which I needed to do, although it pained me a little bit. And I should be content with my remaining bikes, right?
Well— I still have that darn New Years resolution out there to build my own single gear bike. It’s something I want to do, because I just really like bikes. I like the look and that they’re semi-simple machines that are great for transportation. And exercise.
I rode both my multi gear Colnago and my single gear this past weekend. I like both, for different reasons. But in my heart I really like riding single gear bikes. The simplicity allows you to just be on the bike. Which is realy nice.
So I want to build my own single gear on a vintage steel frame. I think it would be neat to have a bike I built from scratch that was mine. Custom. Basically I’ve just waiting for the right frame to come along.
And then two frames did.
So I have frames coming. I will build out bikes and then see what I want to keep. I may then sell my Raleigh. I don’t know.
I have a problem, don’t I?
