    I have no idea who that dude is.

    Do those bars look like they've been trimmed to anybody else?

    I can understand why you think that about the bars, but no, I believe they're just a different shape. I'm sure someone on here knows exactly what they are.

    And I don't know who he is, either.

    On the wrong side? I always felt you should have the QR on the drive side, so if you ever laid the bike down (NO!!!!) you would keep both off the ground.

    no it goes on the other side so it can match the back where the qr would get in the way of the derailer on the drive side.


    This bike really strikes me as an amazing statement of individuality and artistic expression. I mean he took a classic track bike and outfitted it with parts from the same country of origin as the frame. And as if that wasn't enough he actually bothered to match the saddle and the toe clip straps to the frame color. Such attention to detail amazes me. a nice classic bike? Unwrapped bars? A random mix of italian track components? I only hope that some day I can be this inspired to do something completely unique.

    It's Hiroshi Fujiwara. He's a "streetwear" designer, and he's expanded his lineup to include track bikes that he "designed." So basically you can buy pre-blung track bikes and be sure that the yellow rims will match the yellow seat, which will match the yellow Strong-G grips, which will match the yellow decals on the frame.

    It seems like if you're going to go to the trouble to "design" a bike, you should make sure the wheels match, no?

    Personally, I dont like the idea of prefabricated "blinged-out" track bikes. Half the fun is finding all the parts and building up YOUR bike. At the end of the process, I know I feel more like I actually own the bike after building it up from scratch or near-scratch. Just my take on it...
