Fixed Gear

Call me Rico, Swobo

Swobo Sanchez

I got a sweet Swobo Sanchez frame as a father’s day gift. I picked up the frame from Banning’s Bikes in Fullerton CA.

Banning's Bikes

This was my first purchase experience at Banning’s, and let me say that everyone that works there is super cool. Banning himself helped me out with my frame by basically dismantling a complete bike and selling me the frame and fork at a very competitive price. If you live around the Fullerton Area, check out Banning’s bikes and tell them that you read about them on this site.

Back to the bike… I quickly assembled the bike with rims, crankset, stem, seatpost and chain courtesy of the Raleigh One Way. The saddle came from my F20-R and the flat bars from the KHS Tandem. I’m not so sure about the bars, I’m thinking On-One Mary bars… Anyhow, I will be riding this bike to work as soon as I install a front brake, I’m not that good at riding a brake-less fixed gear bike… yet.
