Matthew's involved in the San Francisco singlespeed scene

I remember when Matthew's, an electronic store in Daly City, would give away a bike with any purchase over $200. The bikes were Firenzes. Italian only in name, they were made from plumbing pipe. Ha! I always thought they were a notch lower than Murray or Huffy. It's nice to see them getting second lives as singlespeeds. I always think of Matthew when i see them on Valencia. (Oh! Bonus points for this commercial having "Get a Bike!" in Tagalog. "Kumuha ng bisikleta!")

I added a computer to the XO-1 again. this one is way more secure than the Cateye I had previously. It's basic and I feel like it suits the aesthetic of Fiona. I was interested in an Avocet as well, but those are hard to come by.
