All-City Big Block

I wanted a fixed/SS bike to ride around Boston to/from work, school, around, groceries, whatever. I wanted steel for durability and compliance (and looks) and I wanted an extremely clean, professional aesthetic. I am a mechanic so I did everything myself including building the wheels. Very proud of this bike, it's my baby.
