I’ve been riding an SE Draft road bike for the last year and a half and turned it into a fixed gear this past summer. After riding it more this year I kept thinking about getting a new frame and building up a new bike but couldn’t really decide what I wanted.
Finally! I decided to just buy a Kona Paddywagon complete bike. Got it from my friends at Queen City Cycles. Best purchase I’ve made in awhile!
^My SE Draft on top, Kona on the bottom!
^Shiftless Bastards, the group I ride with here in Springfield, and my lovely Candy Cranks spoke card!
^Nice foot straps my friend Issac made for me, I will probably be posting more about them later! Still testing them out
This upgrade has DEFINITELY made me a better rider and I feel so much more capable of doing things with this bike. Before I was struggling with learning how to do a track stand for example, and I basically have it down now.
