    Gold Nagasawa on FGG tomorrow.

    zomg. its gaudy as hell and the rear breaks(har har) made me barf a bit in my mouth. (zounds! a gigas chainring)
    respect for this person who probably won the lottery just to buy matching gold EVERYTHING (tires as well). (and the keirin rear break adaptor plate thing)

    F***'n hideous. bet it cost a grip though..
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    What's with the rear brake?
    Is this set up SS?
    If so, what the hell is it doing 1) on FGG and 2) in existance

    that would be a BEAUTIFUL frameset if it was built up differently. at least he didnt drill the fork for the brake.

    1. I threw up in my mouth, a little.

    2. Regarding the "zip ties": Keirin Brakeset.

    you'd need LARGE balls to ride this. kinda like riding in a huge roadie group with an s-works frame painted w/ world champ stripes.
    I'd be scared to ride this bike around incase someone raced you and kicked your ass.

    It's got at least four or five different shades of gold going on.

    you'd think he/she'd splurge for some gold housing/zipties/goldfinger brake lever.
    it's ****ing heinous.

    I'd just come with a bigwheel. I lost? boohoo, at least I don't have to lug it out to the garbage tomorrow.

    Oh, and my ride is already loose. Zing!

    It's a keirin brake for temporary use. I know they make them for the front too.

    I wish someone here would price that thing out by part. To each their own, but that thing is UGLY.

    I know that it's a temporary keirin brake, I guess I was asking "Why only a rear?"

    I knew someone would start a thread about this bike, either here or on FGG. The fact the golds dont match is one thing, the rear brake is just random. The rear brake and zip ties make absolutely no sense. Also, where are the gold pedals? Im sure they had the money for the whole set, the gold ones would have looked better but Im sure they just wanted to use their old shoes.

    wow. i think a well-planned out conversion of even the cheapest order is far superior than an overly-blingy multi-thousand dollar ride.

    something just seems wrong about an all-gold fixed gear. jesus ****ing christ. i don't want to hate, but...damn. it seems so...antithetical...to so many things about fixed gear. the d.i.y. ethic so prevalent in the scene, for instance.

    and rear brake...i guess if you're going to put a brake on, might as well make it the most useless of the two, and spend craploads on importing it and then use zipties to hold it on.
    have:ea50 flats, black, light, stiff.
    144 bcd 3/32" 49t sugino track chainring, possibly 75.

    want: risers, light, stiff, 1", black if that can be
    144 bcd 46t or 47t chainring any kind or width
