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)

You may be right, but i'm not sure those are the same bikes. Different wheels and cranks. I really want that stem though.

The first is Massan's bike, the second another owner I'm not familiar with, both designed by Benny Gold for HUF. Believe there were exactly 3 of them made. They're definitely black.

I bought Vigo's expecting them to be the balls. They're not. Make anything besides the most futuristic looking pursuit frame look like crap. And even then you should be riding something classier. Vigorelli's are like school in the summer time.

Here's a technical question. Let's say I wanted to paint/powdercoat a frame and apply my own custom graphics to it. How would one go about applying custom graphics like that to a frame without spending an entirely unreasonable amount of money?

Velographic Decals would be a good way to go. I think his price is usually around $30 for a full set of decals.

Keith still has room to offer different types of product, like the HUF track bike he made, which sold at $2000 a pop.
so "making" = repainting & rebadging a Bianchi Pista Concept? arf.
