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)

And now it's my turn. What don't you like about my bike, aside from the ugly lights and front QR on the wrong side? (Saddle doesn't count either, if only because the inner shell shattered ten minutes after taking the picture).

Change seat to a matching color. Otherwise, I'd hit it!

^wow that bike is loud! the only thing i don't like is the seat. it's not crazy enough for the bike. I'm not a big fan of purple, but the chain works for me with everything going on.else

Actually it's a shop bike, the owner put it together w/ an old matsuri frame he had in storage, plus odd parts pulled of of new obeys, lagers (or premium brews?), and ss/fixed stock. He put it in the front window for customer bait. Some came in yesterday and asked if it was "so and so's" bike because it looked just like it!

Ahhh thats how you do it. In that case ill leave it cuz knowing me Ill mess it up super bad and ill regret it. I wish I could just paint these handlebars I have black and the stem already because I like them, but is there a way to do it so it doesnt look...shoddy...and...bad?

That's pretty much it. The rest of it is teats.

And that IRO should either have fully wrapped bars or chop/flops or different bars. **** or get off the pot!
