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)

Coloured Wheels

Hi

I want to get a coloured wheels on my bike to change things a bit (like the one you see on the new Kona Paddy Wagon). Is there a way to colour it yourself, or do I need to get a new rim that already comes coloured?

you can get rims anodized or powder coated, but you can likely get colored rims at a price lower than that. also, dont forget the million other more creative ways you can customize.

I think he was referring to spray painting or something similar to that.
