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)

New Paintjob.(Pics included)

A little over 3 weeks and it was well worth it. The pics do not do justice. I picked it up around 6pm tonight an can't wait to see this frame in the sunlight! Enjoy.

wow, you did a great job picking out a slick color there, and C&M did a great job laying it down for ya.

So what do they call that color, envious green?

I forget the exact name. It's a Kandy paint I think electric lime green, metalic dust and gold flake.

C&M is on 17th street and 3rd ave. (manhattan)
They are remodeling the shop at the moment so don't be scared. They keep getting more and more track stuff in.


Eddie. Tomorrow when the sunlight is hitting it I will be sure to take the full bike pics. I will post a few followup pics here and a few in the Photo forum.
