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)

How do you think white B43s (black spokes/hub) will look on a Felt TK3?

Just wondering what you guys think.

photoshop it. Or if you can't afford photoshop, get Gimp.

That's what I do to get an idea of how the bike will look with new parts.

i didn't want to post in this thread because i think it's making me stupider. seriously?

they'll look fine. not as good as all black wheels, but the red and black are basically a monotone theme. this isn't rocket science. they're just wheels.

Either that or you can take a survey about each individual part and end up with a bike that nobody (including you) likes.
