    FGG: Worst submission ever

    http://www.fixedgeargallery.com/2006/mar/ToddPelman.htm

    Things you learn about the bike from these photos:
    1. It is a Todd Pelman.
    2. It is yellow.
    3. King headset.

    Can any other detectives figure some more out?

    Dude, that site is kinda lame these days.

    Someone should make "the worst conversion" site.

    PS - Velo Space dude, don't let your site go down like FGG!

    Anyone can buy that fork crown, so that's kind of meaningless. Also, the frame is made out of Columbus tubing - the EAI frames are dedacciai. What I don't get is if this guy made it himself with the help of Mark Zeh (in which case he's kind of a conceited ass), or if Zeh made the frame for him (in which case, why all of the logos/headbadge with his own name?). A dilly of a pickle, indeed.

    i noticed that the rear rim is Wheel Smith, you can read the "Smith" part pretty good, he has a red rear tire and headset. his sticker is crooked! haha the front hub looks like a Suntour Superbe High flange Track laced with aero spokes. bling bling

    also the front cable routing looks funny cause he used an aero lever

    front wheel looks to be radially laced.
    it has a chain.
    the headbadge is ginormous.
    dude doesn't know the difference between "seen" and "scene."
    i still don't like yellow.

    also, FGG should have separate categories for the large number of completely stock iro/pista/soma/surly/langster/raleigh/whatever bikes. i don't need to see another stock mark v.

    they should also separate conversions into a category.
