Just another day, man

I've been thinking of putting together a winter bike for next winter. I can get a cheap frame for $170. Although, it ain't shit, I think it's aluminum or something. I'd like to keep it simple as possible with a single speed on the back and a single chainring on the front. Rigid forks. Run cable housing all the way from the lever to the brakes to keep out crud. Fenders. Platform pedals. Maybe a cute little pink basket in the front and hockey cards in the spokes to make that cool ratatattat sound.

And a bell. Did you know you are legally obligated to have a bell mounted on your bike in Calgary? A cop gave me a $25 fine once for not having a bell. What a dick. That was about 7 years ago and I still don't have a bell.
