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)

they are only cool on certain bikes
a color chain on a langster would never work

I had a bike mechanic friend who build up his new bike with all that colored stuff, chains, spokes, 4 colors of spoke nipples, . . . He took it to a local Century ride the day it was finished and it was stolen within the hour. You do not have to be gaudy to be cool. Try all gloss black (except the spokes).
