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 with color scheme

Hey guys, sorry to start a new thread. But I've kinda hit a wall. I having been dropping a little money into my conversion as of late. Trying to get a uniform color scheme together. I slapped a red crankset and aa blue chain on there that looks sweet. I'm moving to a hillier area for a while, and plan to run a brake. Things like stem and seatpost, what color should they be? Pedals clips and straps all that. Saddle.

Frank

black stem yeah, I was thinking of using one of those threadless-quill adaptors, and putting an open faced stem on there. The pegs are mainly there to deter rear wheel theft, but fun for getting a second person around sometimes.

I want you to be trolling, but I don't think you are.

Your left Oury is crooked. You should fix that if you're so concerned about aesthetics.

how do you stop? I see clips, but no straps. Get them asap if you want to ride brakeless.

Pegs?

Do you stand on them and then drag your butt on the tire to slow down?
