My favorite ALL TIME fixed gear . Randy on FGG
And if I could, could I give a brief shout out to my trusty old Trek 400, may it Rest In Pieces (S/N 622, if you happen to see it around). I put it together last winter from the frame up with spare parts and deals off ebay. I used it to commute to downtown Spokane, WA from Idaho along the Centennial Trail (28 miles one way)(nearly 1500 miles on the odometer) three times a week from mid-April until it was stolen in July. Nothing special about it, just an old reliable, heavy (27 pounds as pictured) piece of utilitarian transportation, so why do I feel so bad now that it's gone?
