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)

A pair of handpainted v rims on someone's bike, the whole picture flipped upside down and with indoor duct work in the background.

Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!

If you think that's strange, you should see the two frames I have hanging from the cranks of my unicycle which is hanging from the ceiling in the garage above my Volkswagen single cab with a couch in the back upon which is sitting a few spare wheels and a box of porn.

Got to be one of the ugliest sets of wheels I've ever seen.

I actually like them. The zebra pattern is garish but fun, like some of visitordesign's stuff. On the right build it could look pretty sweet.
