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)

Just got done spary painting the Bianchi Grizzly

As some of you might know, I had a minty bianchi grizzly that has been stripped of all it's gears.

I didn't like the forest green paint so I spray painted the frame yellow.

I also cut all the braze ons off this afternoon(spray painted after of course). It really lightened up the frame by doing this(even though it is made of tange prestige tubing).

So it's already got the orange ourys. Yellow frame. I'm thinking a red chain for sure. I'll probably throw on the purple deep v's as soon as I get the money to do so.

Now I need to decide on a new saddle...hmmmm any suggestions?

I think he meant, to keep it all in your first thread, rather than reposting every new update you do. A lot of people make a thread that details the entire course of their bike project.
