Just about everyone of my friends has one… so after my mama-chari got jacked last month I figured it was a good time to make the move to a fixed gear bike.
I got a Bianchi which is supposed to be a decent ride. I’m a beginner so it will do for now. I’m keeping the brakes on until I’m up to speed on stopping without them. One thing for sure - I’m swapping out the stock handle bars ASAP!
