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)

Any yellow bikes out there?

I'm building a single speed from a mountain bike frame, and I can get it powder coated yellow for free. Haven't seen a lot of yellow bikes posted in the other threads.

Please share your pics.

Yeah, it is a Cinelli Olympic, great frames and they are fully chromed underneath. Dunno why the SuperCorse gets all the love...

Here's a pic of the frame now and the color it will be - "gas pipe yellow".

I know someone that can throw it into the pile when the gas pipes get coated; all for the price of a 12-pack.

Those are some nice bikes!

I picked up a gold stem for $2 at the LBS; they have some pretty good deals on parts. Probably going to use my tan leather saddle and maybe a yellow chain.

stolen about 6 weeks ago. mostly just miss the brooks getting used to the san marco rolls I got instead since you can get a decent rolls for 15 bucks, but you can't get a usable leather saddle for under 40 :/
