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)

Made a sticker bike.

I still need to fill some gaps with some smaller stickers. I want to do the fork eventually. Much thanks goes out to Kowloon and Guggles for supplying me with the stickers.

still need to fill in some gaps the seat stays and seat tube.

You will probably be hated on for this bike. . .BUT I love it!!! I plan on puttin stickers on my bike frame too!! I like that skull sticker reminds me of a Day of the Dead skull sticker I saw:

Also some other good sticker bikes are Emi's bike from Mash:





And this random bike from Pedal ID:

I've been throwing a lot of stickers onto my GT, what is a good place online to get some cheap stickers? I want some colourful stuff...

The bike looks great, it kinda reminds me of that sharpie bike.

Jet Sanchez I got some Pokemon stickers from Ebay. They are pretty big but will run you about 3 dollars. If you want like stickers with funny sayings on them http://www.stickergiant.com/ is a good site.

http://www.stickergiant.com/pandas_y7616.html <- This isn't a sticker but I wish it was

Looks awesome.

Leave some gaps. The contrast will make the other areas look better. If it's too busy it loses something.

I'm pretty sure those are just some vinyl letter stickers that can be found in any hardware store by the "for sale/rent" signs.
Or even in a sign shop.

I like this. I think this should be the BFSSFG standard response every time someone says flip your stem. No more, no less, just "shut up"

Thanks, I would've said something, but decided against it. I like my stem the way it is, gives me a more upright position. I don't get why people have risers+ dropped stems, doesn't make sense to me.

I've got my stem on positive rise as well (with road bars). I've got about 4 inches of saddle to bar drop, I don't need any more just to conform to a minority of people on the internet's style considerations.

I like his stem fine. I don't get it, it's cause its not threaded but threadless that it doesnt look awkward for some reason. IDk about the hella sticker I've seen it on two bikes Iegi's in mash and Yim's (pictured above) in Macaframa.
