you are going to need a chain guard. You are going to ruin a lot of jeans by getting the leg caught between the chain and that small chainring.

BTW, I think this post belongs on the Fixed Gear discussion area...

What's wrong with canvas seatbags? One of the best accessories I have is a Carradice Lowsaddle Longflap, about big enough for a camping trip. What won't fit there goes into the Rivendell Hobo Bag on the handlebars.

How 'bout riding with me on the Katy Flatlands century? Any ride that has a buzzard for the logo has to be done!
Let me know...you can stay at the Hacienda MXL for the preride beer party.

I might put some knobbies on it for winter riding, but it looks pretty much useless, otherwise.

1. Its so hard to see you riding after dark...get one of those orange flags on a mast, like the recumbents use.

2. Good luck finding a Kryptonite lock....
