Fixie - The Lure Of the Dark Side
I think I’m hanging out with the wrong kids. People from the wrong side of the tracks who’re trying to get me into all kinds of trouble, like wearing my underpants on the outside of my trousers.
The lure of converting my rather old but zippy Raleigh Record Sprint (pictured left in it’s original colours - thanks to Ouji on Flickr) into a fixed wheel bike is getting really strong. According to the various articles I’ve read, it’s no more than a couple of hours’ work, and I figure if I get the parts I need . . . I could do that on Saturday morning before anyone’s awake.
See? I’m starting to think all furtively about this - not a sign that it’s the kind of behaviour that decent, upstanding people would consider.
