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)

Looking for picture--Can't find

I'm looking for pictures of a bike that was posted here a few months ago--it was from pedalmafia, i think it was an Anchor. It had a white trispoke front with black stars, a black and white star pattern saddle, a blue ano BMX stem, and risers. It was iridescent blue. Can anyone point me to it?

Other than the obvious point of the saddle angle, I think the stem bothers me the most. Why try to match some annodized bmx stem with a unique chameleon blue like that? Just get a black road/track stem on there and it would look so much better. That and the fork looks like it's made of little aluminum toothpicks.

i like that frame a lot. too bad the owner is an idiot. fix the seat, flip the stem and throw some drops on there and you have a proper whip.

^^There are more than a few pics of the cat that owns that bike on flickr. For some reason he always seems to ride in huge hiking boots. Whatever works for him though...

poor seat angle for pictures seems to be a theme on bikes from japan =P

i honestly think it's just for pictures as i would imagine you would slide off if u tried to actually ride it lol

like this: (imho it's a sick build and honestly i would love to own it, but he just had to match the seat angle to his stem angle lol)
