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)

too many stickers, not a fan of how the seat looks, yellow toe straps don't really go with the rest of the bike. And, not a huge fan of the different spoke colors.

It'd look nice with a set of box section wheels.

Straps are also backward.

Ever heard of gravity? Those straps are fine, unless of course you were joking??

they are low section rims the thing is, my tires are black with a white stripe down the center, so it blends in with the rims and they look like deep section rims.

and the straps fit nice though =/

This is what I mean:



Straps are supposed to be fed through like the above image, not the other way around.

I was nit-picking, because of how perfectly fine your bike looks.

Something about the mix of Hipster risers with brooks saddle?
But of course both would look better on my bike!! :-)

Anyone else think those fenders look like gigantic bananas peels? About the front rack, really? how practical are they? Looks like there's only room for a 4-pack of wine coolers. I want to see racks built for 30 pack of beer, damnit.

Looks almost too plain. But I guess that could be a good thing. Is that a Arione saddle? They look cool from the side, but from the top they look a bit wonky.

Look like a Huffy for some reason. Is the rear tire touching the seattube? it appears to be in the photo. Did you want to get the rear wheel so close? Maybe adding a half link would help with clearance. If that thing gets out of true radially...
