      Would love to see pics, I was looking at these online but shipping seemed to "kill" the deal of it for me.

      Pretty much a rolling inventory of my spare road parts. The frame is an 80s giant I brushed the paint off of and never got around to repainting and the wheels are the $100 specials off amazon with new tires, freewheel, cog, lockring and axle nuts. I love this thing. I use it more for road training than anything, but it gets moving pretty good.

      I was waiting for the rain to stop before snapping some pictures.
      I ordered new pedals, cages, straps and handle bars for it. And I had a Bianchi saddle from her last bike.

      I paid $279 FREE shipping.

      Hows the quality of Windsor bikes? I've been looking at a couple but I can't commit. I'm looking for a budget weekend bike.

      Just got my first fixed gear. Felt Brougham with a Sturmey Archer 3 speed internal gear hub.

      [IMG][/IMG]

      [IMG][/IMG]

      I learned how to ride fixed while riding it home where i bought it in NYC, all the way to Queens NY. I didn't like not being able to lean into turns and dipping through traffic (pedal hit the ground twice while turning sharp) and I also didn't like the gearing (46/13 fixed). I decided riding fixie simply wasn't for me...so I went to a local bike shop, picked up a 17t freewheel cog. Not as fast top-end anymore, but I love being able to coast while zipping through traffic and at 46/17, Im definitely pedaling more and getting a better work-out.

      LOL - as long as i let off the pedals for a quick moment, it'll work for quite a while.

      Looks good! I got to checking out bikes direct I may just have to order one of those, almost nobody can compete with those prices... Hows the quality of her bike? I know it wont be no pista concept but if it gets round without falling apart it seems like a deal.

      Sorry for the REALLY late repose I over looked your post.
      I really like Windsors for the price, great first bike and they have upgraded parts from when I had one back in 2006.

      She has only put a few miles on it so far but I rode the Sh1t out of mine and it held up. After awhile I replaced a few components just because I wanted to but nothing broke. I rode it at least several thousand miles before selling it.
