Finally, after considering for quite some time and frequenting Craigslist for the perfect deal, I purchased my first fixed-gear bicycle tonight.
It’s a beater, but I’m happy with the deal that I got, and I bought it because I enjoy riding bikes and I want to learn how to ride a fixie, so I could care less about how it looks.
The frame seems to be a mid-70s Raleigh Sprite, in coffee brown. Front tire is missing the inner tube, front brakes are shot, and rear tire seems pretty worn.
I’m stopping by the shop tomorrow, and after some TLC, it should be as good as new. Can’t wait to take it around Berk for a spin. Looking forward to many fun rides.
