My fixie is finished. For now. Working on finding a white chain and saving money for a pink rear gear. 

Went on a bike ride with my buddy yesterday who talked a lot of shit about my bike not having brakes and how dangerous it was compared to his Trek mountain bike. Shortly after, a Chinese lady stepped into the bike path, he slammed on his brakes, and skidded into a crash, resulting in a bent front tire and road rash. It was a nice bike ride though…
