Windsor Clockwork Orange Build

Before leaving Captiva, Florida, to return home to New Jersey, I had already ordered a Windsor Clockwork in groovy orange (my overwhelmingly favorite color) online from BikesDirect.com. The low price of $299, inclusive of shipping, was a no-brainer. I had to try this single speed thing. It seemed ideal for relatively flat terrain, such as on Sanibel/Captiva where I had just ridden about 100 miles. So it would be fun to take on our annual summer vacations to Delaware and New Jersey beaches. It also seemed suitable for my native terrain in Northern New Jersey, which abounds with hills, as a way of maximizing the short 30-50 minute weekday workouts that I squeeze in between business meetings and lunch.
