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)

Help me decide on my next bicycle

So I am drooling over an IRO SS/Fixed Gear Bicycle, and i prolly wont buy this for a while... I wanted to get some opinions on which setup looks the best. I think my fav is the first picture, and I have already thought of a name... THOR!

Specs:
53cm IRO Jamie Roy
14T Fixed
16t Free
Toupe Team Saddle Gero Blue
MKS Sylvan Track Pedals

Here is the Toupe I would buy for the bike


So with this saddle im going to add blue tape.
1.
2.
3.
4.

but here is my current bike, i was calling her Panda, but now i have changed it to Judy.

I'd say 3 w/ black bar tape on the horns. Tony will probably have black cranks in stock again by the time you get around to ordering it.
If you go 3, get an all black Toupe. BTW, have you ridden on a toupe? It's not for everyone. It's one of those love or hate saddles.
