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)

now you need a front fender. It looks pretty good though, some people just butcher Varsities when they try to make a cheap conversion

Now that's different. I like it. Did you spray paint the rear rack on the sidewalk where the bike is parked in the first photo?

what's on the spokes?

I like the bike, not the usual look that people go for on this subforum.

I'm a utility fan, so it's all good with me.

Are you going for a Rasta look?

That's right you have a bell on that thing. Also love the American flag with the Rasta colors. Unity!
