fixie

ive had terrible bike woes this week.  i was racing between library sites and accidently rode through a patch of glass (ok it wasnt an accident i knew the glass was there but still rode right through it as i didnt have time to change my course). as a result my tyre immediately deflated and not even the new fancy bike pump that the libray has supplied could help it. but the spare tube that was part of the bike repair kit could.

so with the help of a friend (ok so the friend did it all) “I” successfully changed the tyre and once again I was good to go.  however the next day I went to leave the library the tyre was again flat.

so i think its time for a new bike –  that fixed gear machine that i have been dreaming of.  but my problem is I dont think they make many chicks models of them – the one pictured above is the only one I have found on the net so far.  I am afraid that my fixed gear dream will still be a dream and will be forced to buy a daggy yet practical women’s frame bike.

    to complete the fixed gear look, you need to get a skateboard helmet*, and then ride around fitzroy looking too cool to talk to anyone.

    * substitute helmet with a hibiscus flower in your hair, if required.
