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 can't peel off the decal. I think they are under the clear coat. I guess I dont mind the decals because I really just dont care. I care about the ride and it is sweet. I have bar tape but I have not put it on yet.

I agree... I have a front brake and a flat bar in it right now. Thos pedals actually have a stealth spd in the middle.

Cool. Where'd you get those flat bars that morph into time trial bars with just a mouse click?

Suggestion: take a link out of your chain. Your wheel will sit further forward in your dropouts, which may be stronger, and it will look better with the seattube of your frame.

Also, get better cranks or at least take off the logos. You can do better than bulletproof, get some splined ****.

Thanks for the Tips Boss Moniker. I have the Paul cranks ordered but they are going to take a few weeks. I hope those will meet your approval.

I am not sure which rear cog I am actually going to run so I started with the 44 17 but I may go 18 or 19 so that is why the chain is long for now but you are right about the wheel needing to be tucked up inside the seat tube. I will post new pics when the new cranks are on.

That's a hot bike!! I like it, a lot... I can't find the fetish site though, wasn't it fetish-cycles.com?

I always liked the decals they put on their frames, I wanted to get one...

Now I think I want to get one of those badboys!

Arr.. it's a lot more expensive than I thought it'd be .. I can't shell out $500 just for a pretty frame.
