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)

Masi - http://www.masibikes.com/cycles/speciale_fixed.php

Milwaukee Bicycle company - came in orange:

KHS did the Flite in orange for a while.

But as Batson says, you could get a frame powder coated/enamelled pretty cheap and you wouldn't be picking a bike solely on its colour.

find a frame you love then powder coat it
most orange frames have a real lax road geometry
not because they are orange, but its just is that way

I heard the new IRO Mark V Pro's are going to come in orange. I was going to wait for a local LBS to get them in, but bought a yellow frame instead.

ORANGE FTW

That orange had nothing to do with Eddy. It was the color of the teams sponsor, Molteni sausage. The orange "Molteni" painted frames have been made by Colnago, De Rosa, Falcon, Windsor, and probably others.

You should pair your orange frame with black components and make a sick jack-o-lantern bike.

i guess it kinda depends on where you go but i don't see it costing more that $150. I've had friends that had their car wheels powdercoated for $100

i know it has been mentioned already, but if you're really into an orange frame, go for the iro angus, it has reynolds 631 tubing and the geometry of those bikes is nice
