So I’ve been really bored out here when I’m not working. Bored as in, literally sitting on the bare floor of my unfurnished apartment in unbearable humidity all weekend with not a real clue as what possible fun I could have here in the wonderful state of Michigan. After having spent an absolutely phenomenal weekend out in Chicago with Josh, Chob, Tomasz, Melvin and the rest of the crew, I came to realize that a lot of my friends ride fixed gear bikes. No, not to be trendy hipsters or try to block traffic on a busy street by doing skid stops, but rather for the pleasure of riding cool bicycles with friends and getting in shape.
So I bought one too. It’s an SE frame. It used to say PK Ripper on the side, but I thought it looked horribly homo-tastic so I removed the stickers from my bike and applied them to our newly acquired rental van, also known as the Kanjo racing van. Now our van is equipped with a recipe for speed.
Here is a picture of my bike. I took it for a few miles ride on Saturday, and I’m sore from it. It needs a seat that isn’t made from butt-hurting plastic.
I wore shorts so I didn’t feel the urge to roll up one of my pant legs, bro.
