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)

i'm not a fan of the gold per se, but this one's twenty times nicer than the nagasawa.

At least that frame is gold.
The Nagasawa was reddish copper.

travis said that the frame is a le jeune that the dude had repainted.

so weird because i sold my le jeune a couple months ago and the guy who bought it said he wanted to put gold parts on it. he "already had gold campy bmx cranks".

im bummed cause my old paintjob was sick!

It's only disgusting because the seatpost and spokes aren't gold yet. Then it will beautiful.

At first I hated the stem color. Then I noticed it matches the saddle, and now i kinda like it.

I'd be much more impressed if someone who had a gold bike actually had all the parts annodized themselves so they at least match

i can guarantee that this would still prove problematic based on the differences in the alloys used by the variety of manufacturers in their parts. The annodizing will still have slight variations in coloration based on this metallurgic differences. The only way to guarantee a solid match is to paint the parts. Which, I am sure juvi-kyle already has soemthing in the works...

Christ, this is getting out of control. Next time I scoop some pile from a garage sale for $10 I'm rattlecanning the whole damn thing gold and putting it on CL San Fran for $500. Heck, it's friday, I may do that tomorrow.

To be fair, though, the shades of gold/copper match up a lot better on this one than on the last uber-bling rig.
