New bike alert: Sekine fix

Fair warning, folks. Sibley built me a new bike, so now you might see me rolling all around town on my fixed-gear Sekine.

I took this photo right after nabbing it from the shop. The bike has undergone several essential modifications since then. First of all, the frame is smaller than ideal, so I had to find a longer seatpost and jack that saddle up a couple inches. Now my knees don't hit the handlebars and my legs don't instantly cramp up.

Speaking of the saddle, it's beautiful vintage leather and I adore it, except I rode over twelve miles last Tuesday and it chafed something fierce. Gave me a case of the Brooks butt.
