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)

Just finished building my Bareknuckle

Just thought I'd share. Just finished building it and I'm very excited about it. I'm out of money so some of the parts I really want will have to wait but here it is. What do you guys think?

Whatever it is, everything looks nice together.

Jon,
Randy got it on ebay a couple months back for a ridiculous deal and Corey didn't build it, Randy did.
I remember Corey building a black one up a while back, it's on the FGG.

Oh, and P.S. I don't have any room in my car for the Stupor Bowl.

Was it a black or green?
Definitely a hot bike, either way.

That's a very nice bike there.

I've been thinking about getting a Bare Knuckle frame myself. A blue one. Does anyone have a blue BN? I've never seen one on FGG or anywhere else.

What size is the frame ?

If you get the blue you have to get brown Deep Vs.
Please.

I was thinking white Deep Vs, but after seeing those pics of them in brown, my mind has almost changed.

Yes, I love the light blue/brown combo. It is quite nice. Brown would also look really good on a green frame. Not dark green, like that british racing green frame. Or that green bob jackson on FGG

I love the chocolate brown Deep Vs, but I am slightly skeptical of how they'd look with black tires.
Sorry, Randy.
Let's talk about his bike more.

I got it on ebay for less than shop cost somehow. Go figure.
