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)

awesome looking bike, not a fan of the crank arms though, and I'm kind of over the paul chain ring, but still a beautiful bike none the less.

Is that a Paul ring? Ive seen it on a couple other ANT bikes and it is usually mounted to one piece cranks. Also the cranks on that bike appear to be Profile SS BMX cranks, which are pretty sweet, just not on a road bike. I am really interested in what tires those are.

That's the precursor to Paul cranks. They're just retro bech cruiser style cranks.

At least that's the style...

who makes those track ends?

I've seen them on other bikes--sometimes they are the best looking thing on those bikes.

I like it, with that ridiculous blingy gold hubset it's "old-tymey meets lowrider".

Nice bike, but I don't understand that type of handlebar. Looks uncomfortable.

Me neither but lots of people like 'em. Different strokes for different folks.

Generally, I don't really like the blingy bikes, but this one has a lot of character. Nice.

what is that front hub? it has cutouts, cant be a phil then can it? the flanges look humongous, like a drum brake or something. and there's definitely something on the inside of the fork right by the hub, on the non-drive side.

That bike is so sick that it's got tiny malignant tumors on its few remaining T-cells.

the problem with bikes that are planned and themed such as this one is that it only takes a tiny detail here or there to be off to ruin it

mismatched gold (copper) is one

using that chainring on any bike is another

Love the frame, despise the white tires. Front hub is just strange.
