It’s been hinted about. It’s been planned. Now it’s here.
Yesterday, I went and picked up my latest bicycle. It’s a 1980s-era Raleigh frame and a mix of old and new parts. It is my first single-speed bike, and my first minimalist bike. I don’t intend to add a rack or fenders.
Vic’s Classic Bikes built this one for me. I need to ride it for a while to see if the current gear ratio is where it needs to be. I hope to ride the Harvest Homecoming ride on this bike, even if it means walking up the hills.
This bike is not set up as a fixed-gear. It does have a flip-flop hub, but I’m not planning on riding fixed.
