I guess I got it right pretty quickly by luck.How do you like that Brooks saddle? I feel like I'm always tinkering w mine to get it just right.
Update: I made my weight loss goal of losing 100 lbs in one year in December 16th, a few weeks early even. Nearly 100% of the exercise was done on that Worksman that I ride at work. Lots of new parts were put on that bike in the last few months and a nice tune up makes it a nice riding tank.On January 1 of this year I weighed 270 lbs and had enough. After riding one of these beasts at work for up to 10 miles a day I'm down 70 lbs.
120 lbs of 36-20 singlespeed fixie steel, pedalling my ass off. I'm on vacation this week so I decided to dust off the rigs I had the last time I biked frequently, which was 2007.
Titus Switchblade. I just got this built up when my youngest was born. I've never had it off road since, just collecting dust.
Spare Parts Singlespeed. I built this one day in '07 because I was bored and was tired of looking at all the spare parts I had laying around. Should be fun cruising around on this.
I'm sure these are dinosaurs compared to today's bikes. But that's ok, they still work and they'll help me make my goals a reality.
Amazing! Congrats!!!Update: I made my weight loss goal of losing 100 lbs in one year in December 16th, a few weeks early even.

I started using the MapMyRide app in July and it really helped out. My work shift is 6am-6pm whenever I'm scheduled or for OT. I show up at work and I'm on the bike no later than 5:10am and bike until 6am then bike during breaks. I'm up to at least 30 miles a day. Here's a screenshot of my end of year totals.
Goals for 2020 are to maintain the same weight, maybe even dip down to 160lbs. Another goal is to start getting some miles in away from work. New carbon fork, headset, stem and tires have been ordered for my other dinosaur, a 1987 Centurion Ironman Expert with a full Shimano 600 groupset and Mavic Open 4CD rims circa 1993.
Remember: it's not what you ride, it's that you ride at all. Happy New Year everyone.
Picked up a ~10yo Fuji Team that's been sitting in a heated basement for almost all of those 10 years last weekend off of Craigslist. Tuned/lubed it up a bit and would kill for 45 degrees to break it in. Snow/slush/ice on all roads 'round these parts...
I’m surprised you don’t clip in. I thought almost all road bikers had clip pedals. Is that not a thing anymore?
