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)

Help me with this fixie graphic design

So today I came up with a rather cool fixie-related graphic design idea. It's easier to show you than to explain it, but before I can get much farther with it, I need a little help from anyone with a decent digital camera and a fixie built with a frame with track ends. I need a good reference pic, and have been unable to find anything to fit my needs after looking around on the web for several hours. I need a picture of the portion of the bike in the picture below, only I need it totally straight on so that the wheel, etc are in profile. Preferably against a white wall to make the vector tracing a little easier. The bigger the better, the clearer the better. If anyone can help me out, that would rock. I promise this design will turn out ******** sweet. If you want to help, and your pic is too big to post, email it to me directly at david@davidrmunson.com. Thanks all...
