Here is a gem right out of the Flickr pool called The Pit at Chrystie and Broome
I’ve been riding this thing around on the weekends/days off.
I moved to NYC with two bikes and one was a one-niner but it didn’t last very long. Other than that and a few loaners here and there I’ve just been on single speeds and fixed bikes for the last 5 years.
This bike is not build for speed but it sure is comfortable. Steel frame with Phil hubs. 48 spoke Velocity Dyads wrapped in RiBMo 32′s. Paul Canti’s pulled by NOS Dura-ace levers. Dura-ace shifters moving Ultegra derailleurs. And a Brooks springer.
And a big brass bell.
I spent part of the weekend in Boston with some friends from Trek Bicycles. Before I got back to NYC I was wearing some can’t-buy-em’ new shoes.
This post is a sort of thank you for the great time riding bikes and hanging out. But in case you’re looking for sub 200g per ½ pair road shoes, check out the road version.
