Initially I bought this bike (for $50) as a fixed gear bicycle conversion project. I gave up on that, and instead built it up as a singlespeed bicycle for my dad. It has upright bars, and is super fun to ride. I hope to have some pictures at some point...


Notes

Not sure the Serfas tires are going to work (27 x 1 1/4”). I put some 700x28s on the Bianchi Brava and they are hard and unconfortable.

Maybe these Schwalbe HS159s instead? They are heavy, but cheap ($15) and durable.

Another tire option: IRC Road Winner II Duro. $19. Plush. Relatively light. Yay.

REI has the Conti Ultra Sport in 27x1 1/4. Cool. $18.
