    I found this bike on a fixie gallery site and liked the covering of the spokes on the rear wheel. It looks custom made to me, but does anywhere actually sell these? How do you go about attaching custom made ones to the spokes?

    Does anybody else have any interesting aspects of their fixed gear bikes they wouldn't mind sharing?
    it's a pie-plate, dude.

    and that bike wasnt made to be different -- it was made to play polo.

    Always knew them as "dork discs". To be unique, I would rock some apehangers with 5 sets of oury grips covering them, in the color of a rainbow. Mount a huffy brake lever on top tube, running to dura-ace front caliper on a non-machined carbon track wheel. Bananna seat in crushed purple velvet...

    all of this on a Nagasawa that has been powdercoated lime green with a 29er suspension fork that is murdered out.

    Wait, you can't edit the magic away from the OP. If you don't embrace the joke, it's bound to get worse...

    I like the "random" button, too bad it doesn't pick a random size and gear ratio too
