    Yea ya oh yea, pretty sweet right therr.

    Dis here is teh "Sweet Elvish" i just built up to pwn all of your n00b fixies.

    Custom paint job done by one of the finest frame painters, me and canadian tire spray paint.

    Color scheme is elvish.

    Ill.

    KMC Kool chain, Mavic MAtrees laced to an über sovos reeeear track hub.

    Vintage benotto crankset, no it's not a "track crank", but whotf cares, works primo.

    Record Headset, chopped and flipped drop bars, Deda stem, Tektro brake lever, Knesis fork, and love.

    42 in de front 14 in de back.

    I really like it. REALLY like it.

    I actually think the stem looks cool on your bike. I don't really like it usually... but really like it on yours.

    Cool.

    I would expect that elves would know how to forge a dropout, but ah well.

    I taped off the lugs with some painters tape and just used some yellow spray paint.

    For the writing on the frame I used a car touch up paint pen.

    Sweet Elvish you got there Mitchell! From the looks of it I would say your rear wheel was probably built by the best bike mechanic ever.
