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)

Pics of Battleship Grey Steamrollers w/ diff. Velocity colors?

Trying to find some shots of battleship grey steamrollers with colored velocity rims. I've already looked through the Fixed Gear Gallery and done searches on this forum as well as some others.

Velocity colors I'd like to see (on the grey steamroller):
-black
-white
-yellow
-orange
-green
-eggplant

I've already found pics of most of the other colors together...

There is a search function on FGG:

http://valla.uchicago.edu/cgi-bin/fgg.pl?string22=surly

Maybe something will catch your eye in there? Or did you already figger that out?

Just trying to make sure the color scheme I end up with is exactly what I want. Especially since I haven't seen the frame color nor any of the wheel colors in person.

My frame will be coming next week, but I'd like to order the wheels tomorrow to reduce the time I'm without a bike. Battleship grey is a little bit tricky as it's got a little bit of blue in it from the pics I've seen.

The battleship grey Steamroller is probably one of very few frames that can go with literally any color.
You're over thinking it.
