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)

IRO Color Poll

Not the size or the style, I tried to pick out all of the most popular opinions....I agree with Ryand that an internet bikegeek color is a great idea, along with the 3rensho color....

Aren't there already three threads about this? Please don't add more confusion. I think we're all befuddled enough.

i dont think there are enough threads about this. im gonna make a poll thread to decide if we should have a thread about how many fender/caliper/cable/babyseat holes there should be.

OMG I FORGOT WE HAVENT EVEN DISCUSSED THE CUSTOM BB DRAIN HOLE!

Primer grey isn't a colour. If you want a bike thats primer grey, sand it and use primer. Thats why its called primer grey.

Also, the fork should be coloured "bondo".

I know this is hard to believe, but I spent a long time creating this thread, about 1/2 hour. That's a long time for a thread.
By the time I posted the poll section, I already had negative comments. I appreciate your positive feedback.
I guess I am just a "graph" type of guy. Really I would go for any distinctive color. but neon green is my fav.

are you serious? is it that hard to look at another thread and remember what you were talking about in a previous thread?

this thread makes perfect sense, all it needs is some sort of time shut off, like, tomorrow at midnight or something, that way it just becomes so, and is no longer an issue. if people don't like the out come, then they don't get their most desired color... Wah Wah.

+1 on a cutoff for polling. This thread is a good idea. The most popular colors from the other thread are all there.
