AZFixed quietly passed one hundred thousand hits at some point last night. It took a little over six weeks to get there, at the pace the site generates now, the next 100k will happen in about half that time. The forum has taken on a life of its own. I used to update each thread, read each comment and prune the discussions myself, fixing links, helping people post pictures and the like. The anxious parent running behind a wobbly little pedaler sans training wheels. Now i just oberseve while people enjoy the community. I am proud of the accomplishments that the forum has generated. I know it has helped that community of people find a common ground, albeit a virtual one. This site is still my creative outlet. I post all my ideas, good and bad, here for a relatively few to read. There are some weeks that no one even comments. I dont track the stats on the blog like the forum. Who even knows if anyone has ever visitied this site more than once?
Now...what about this bitchin Nagasawa? 59 actual TT. A rare find in Japan where most bikes are in the 52-53 range. Smoking clean paint.
I am technically back in the market for a new frameset/bike. I have conceded that the fixie inc is too small and i just cant get right on the bike. If i wasnt using the thing to commute it might be alright to just goof around on, but with a full pack and the heat, i need something a tick more comfortable. I will start with finding a 59 and then working off my wobble naught measurements from my road bike, see how close i can get without looking like a hybrid. With a satin silver set of DA high flange hubs and some bulls up front. What do you think?
