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)

stenciled logo

tired of people asking what kind of bike so i decided to stencil on a logo i was working on for my bike. when i paint the bike next month i will get the decals professionally done. what do you guys think?






went with a font similar to 3rensho. i think it looks pretty cool.

i didnt want anything too crazy. the real decal will be black outlined with yellow fill. i think it looks pretty classy. of course it wont be all crooked like this one.

One of these days I want to try my hand at airbrushing some stuff on a frame...but until then my vinyl machine will work. It's always fun to change things up every so often.

Most any sign shop can cut custom vinyl decals for you in many colors and fonts. Just check your local yellow pages and call around for the best deal, because some shops don't want to bother with little jobs like this. My local guy only charges me 20 bucks a set, since I've come around a few times now.
