Track tall bike

I'm looking for pictures of a track tall bike I saw a while ago. it was pearl white with lime green and pink components. I believe it also had a carbon (or some track specific) fork. Anyone know where I can find some pics?

The only one I can think of is this one:



This is Capn ˇFUN!'s fixed gear tallbike, but it's not a track bike...

yeah, that's mine. Getting the trackstand down despite being scared to ride the whip. It kicks the chain off like a tequila fueled mountain goat. (that is skidmark in the background on his suicycle - the other fixed tallbike in town)

VT tallbike, please note that Capn iFUN! is riding with CLIPLESS PEDALS. A true pioneer in the art of riding fixed tallbikes, and I've had the pleasure of meeting him .

I also got to sit on Skidmark's suicycle .

Yeehaw!

Thanks for the pics. Definitely nice work. My fixed gear tallbike isn't as nice looking but its got about 1000 miles on it since the end of july when it was built.

Have we seen photos for comparison? That's a lot of mileage on a tallbike, kudos to you!

I read the title "Track Tall Bike" and I was thinking "Cool! A tall bike with tracks!" I was sadly disappointed.

Nothing fancy, now it actually has a 700c front wheel instead of the 27" one in the picture. Oh and heres a vid of my first backwards circle on it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ek4e6OPP5cY

Nishikis--always a good choice !

You looked a bit worried at first on that vid, but what a great smile when you pulled it off .

Yea I got that Nishiki out of a dumpster too, the chain and seat stays looked like they had been run over, perfect for tall bike. Yay for recycling.

Way to go! Nice to know that you were able to put a piece of 'trash' to good use .
