Well here She is. After months of saving/waiting/planning She is finally done! This is my first Fixed Gear Build and after my first spin (including several skip stops and track stands) I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!! Coolest $hit EVER. Here is a little about the build and then on with the Bike Porn:
Frame/IRO Mark V 62cm.(Powder Coated Satin Black)
Rims/Velocity Deep V's (Black ANO)
Hubs/Phil Wood 32h. (Black)
Spokes/DT Swiss Competition Double Butted (Black)
Nipples/? (ANO Red)
Tubes/Forte Puncture Resistant (Bomb Proof!)
Tires/Continental Grand Prix 4000S's (23c.)
Headset/ACROS (Red ANO)
Stem/Thomson Elite (26.0mm/130mm./-5dg.)
Bars/SOMA Fab EL TORO's (42cm.). I also bought some NITTO B259AA Risers as well (Black ANO) w/shim. I think I am just going to swap out the stem for a 25.4 so both will fit better w/no shim needed.
Brake/Tektro Quartz (Black)
Crankset/Sugino 75 (Black 175mm.)
Chain Ring/Sugino Zen (Black 50t.)
Bottom Bracket/Phil Wood Stainless (109.5mm.)

I believe I am somewhere in the neighborhood of 84.6 Gear Inches and it is super smooth. I am like a damn kid on this thing.
I am curious to hear your thoughts. Hate if you want I just don't care.
Many Thanks to all who put up with my often stupid Noob ?'s throughout the course of this build. Aside from all of the too cool for school that goes on alot in this forum there is also a plethora of valuable info/insight as well.
Not so great at posting pics yet though.
