Of My Own Free Quill

I realize I am remiss in updating you on the pair of track bikes I received from Classic Cycle back in April: As tempted as I've been to ride the Fiorelli slowly around Brooklyn in the hopes that people will notice the massive street cred of my inch-pitch drivetrain, I have not yet had occasion...
