.my new fixie - Grafa Transit.

As some of you might know, I've recently ventured into fixies. It's more of a fashion statement rather than the love for cycling. I've always wanted to go and hang out near the beach but driving and paying the toll to enjoy the view at the BORR seems a bit absurd. Thus' I've taken the leap and got myself a fixie.

Learning a fixie is not an easy feat. It takes a pretty hard toll on your body (knees, palm, butt, neck). I could've gone with other hybrids (road + mtb) but I just love the simplicity of a fixie. Been looking for a Leader 721/Kagero but got to know that a fellow friend of mine has the Grafa Transit. The Grafa Transit seems more like a hidden gem as it is really limited in quantity and not much of these framesets are in the market. Some people like the chrome, others just hate it. I personally LOVE the shit out of it. Maybe when I get bored of it, I might repaint it but for now... I can't stop looking at this beauty.

Grafa Transit frameset. Velocity Deep V wheelset. Vuelta crank. Wellgo pedals. Element Saddle by Velo. Nitto stem and dropbar.

Planning to get : Front brake just in case because Malaysian drivers are shit. Freewheel cog will only go in once I'm used to the fixed gear hub.

initial burn was 1.5k.

Then i got night lights and a seat clamp.

Still planning to get a cycling short to pad my CROTCH and a front brake.

The rest maybe in the future... far future.
