Firenze GL5000:
OK, this one takes the cake. The Firenze bicycles were a freebie given with any stereo purchase from Matthews Stereo (top of the hill Daly City) in the early 80s.

Ride Fixies With Care

Some towns are ticketing riders with one or no brakes. Please check with your local bike shop for this information.

Beware of hills. Since you cannot coast on a fixed gear, high speed pedaling (spinning), over 120 RPM, requires practice and skill.
