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)

Pista Concept/Super Pista Photo Superthread

I don't know what it is, but I love Pista Concepts. Something about them screams 'track bike perfection' to me. Anyways, post your favorite pics of Concept builds you've seen (or own). Here's mine:

I love Pista Concepts that are completely blacked out. They look so clean.

But, this is my friend Chris' Concept and it pretty badass aswell.

that bike is from a dude in nyc who built it up for his gf. supposedly the crank threads are stripped (making it near impossible to take off the cranks)

at least that's the excuse he used when my friend tried to buy it off fixed.gr/ny

Wow, and he only wants $800 for it, and makes no mention of that problem? Awesome! Sounds like a stand-up kinda guy.

Damn, I remember it being a Concept, but this Argon 18 gives the Concepts a run for their money (Kid Koala-endorsed FTW):

yeah, i didn't build the bikes, i just like them. i'd immediately trade out risers for drops if i got in the vicinity of any of these.

basically what i meant was this: nice fat tubing, very clean welds to the point where it almost resembles a filet brazed bike, a frame built for speed. these are the things that appeal to me about concepts.

you're just saying that cuz you've owned two of those...




i was thinking of posting that argon for honorable mention, but yeah, it is pretty damn sweet too. thanks for putting it up, i agree that it resembles a concept pretty closely. i like the fork on it a lot.
