Hey Alex, I was supposed to go by WTB today to talk about maybe building a fixie. I got caught up finishing up my holiday shopping, so I was unable to go. I think after the holidays when I have time off from work, I will definitely be able to swing by. Thanks for the offer to help. I was actually over at WTB once a couple months ago to see about my roadie's front derailer. You guys are doing good work over there.
Hey, I know I said on my post that I probably wouldn't build, but to be honest I am intrigued by the option now. All the "gentle prodding" by everyone has me? seriously considering doing it. I have never taken on a project like that, but I'm a quick learner and I think I would like to give it a shot. How big of an undertaking is it really? I wouldn't even know where to get a good used frame... I guess I could really use some guidance on this thing.
I'm not gonna lie the weather is too much for me tonight. I had trouble walking let alone riding. I will try to make it next time though. Do you know when the next winter maintenance class is at West Town?
Hi, thanks for checking on me. I appreciate the offer but I actually have some mountain bike tires but have not had the chance to put them on yet. I will be stopping in Tuesday to get some help. Seeya there.
