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)

Pic request

Deciding on a winter build, looking for pics of a murdered out fixed, but with silver deeps. If you can be of assistance I do appreciate. Scrod might appreciate my frame choice...

Thanks guys, this is what I'm thinking:725TR black(decals removed), carbon fork, carbon seatpost, black stem with black bullhorns(I may or may not leave the orange tape on), and silver V2 Julians. Some parts will be stolen from my current ride, some purchased, everything is still "in the planning" stages and subject to further notice. Once this annoying build is done I'm gonna concentrate on a nice classy steel build.

seat tube or seat post? It takes a round post, but yes the seat tube is aero.

I don't dig aero posts either. I should have Photoshopped it out.

Yes, but it's round where it inserts into the frame.

Haha, I didn't know about the third pic. And does the second pic even have any photoshop?

Surely you cannot forget your crowning achievement:

You're right JB, I just threw the others up to disturb carleton.

You're also right about Jesus w/ bananas. It looks so natural. I may just weep a little.
