First fixed gear bicycle, first post. Newb saying hi.
Big ups to Hans for hookin me up with Nikcee to get my hands on my first. :evil: fixed gear bicycle cherry popped, now roll on the addiction.
Nothing too flash 09 Schwinn Madison. Lost rear brake, swapped to fixed, new bars, grips, front brake lever and cable added.
Next pedals, clips and straps. Then stem, post and seat. Maybe new paint, wheels and crank later down the track.
Had an ACL replacement 3 months ago so tentative steps then more seat time.
PS. Hans -----> Rollerblades on a public forum hahahahahahaha

i always thought the madison was pretty nice for a first fixie. welcome on board, and nice work to the Cee brothers for hooking you up…
Howdy… I like the colour! :-o

Have you met Craig C yet?
These would look sweet on it.

Cheers Rowdy, we’ll roll sometime soon for sure. Beer @ Blue, well that’s just standard!

Even more pleased to hear you are rolling around and into it.
