Thanks! I love it. I like italian bikes as well but, their paint is wait to fragile for everyday usage. Maybe one day down the line.

Your transition from high-end street fixies to these old road bikes with low-end components strikes me as strange..

BklynLOW says:

What kind of douche bag comment is that? Should it matter what components are on the bike? As long as it gets ridden. The low-end components are all original to the bikes, so I'm in no pressure to change them, they work properly so I ride it.

I think in a low key kind of way he just called you a trendy hipster lol

HAHA! I don't think his comment was low-key at all. But, that usually comes from hipsters that live in Greenpoint/Williamsburg area.

"high-end street fixies" haha ohhh do thats what those are called. Alot of people have OG roadies in their collection, I dont see how that is strange. Im a courier in Sacramento,Ca and all the other messengers have "high-end street fixies" but have OG roadie for winter and just to coast everynow and again.

7/8-speed 105 isn't bad at all. I definitely wouldn't call it low-end. Sora and Tiagra are low-end. Also, his transition from having one high-end track bike at a time to having a respectable stable of track and road bikes isn't that strange. C'mon quixoticle, you're better than this.
