Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Haha you think that thing is mine?! This whole board would know if I bought a pink Kalavinka before it arrived, trust me.

It's just on their site. I think I am in love with it.

Man oh man, you'd have to ride to another neighborhood to even THINK about locking it. But why would you ever leave it?

I'd rock that pink frame... like teadoggg said, real men sport pink...
Those are beautiful frame and the price is pretty nice, are they custom or stock?

I am comfortable enough with my sexuality to ride a complete pink frame....

just think the chris king pink headset...the pink paul hubs...pink velocity rims...pink terry saddle(nice!)...pink (dare I say it) spoke nipples...

i think you would have the hottest bike ever if you had that going for you...even hotter than all of the gold components on my bike placed on to [165]s gold gan well pro...

because after all style is much more important than function!

So, not custom, but made to order? That's pretty tight.

What is the shipping from Japan do you think?

I believe you're sized up or you give them your fit and they make the frame based on that and in your options, so yes it's custom.

Shipping - not sure. You could ask them.

jrowedc would know better since he has one. Or Ceya.

hey now.

There have been very few occasions when Iíve considered whether it was possible to knock a man unconscious with my frame pump. First time I saw that bike was one of them. I mean, he would have gotten a nice conversion out of it, but it might have been awkward the next time we met up at the track.
