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)

EightInch Amelia "Lime Green" rims are not lime green

All the photos I've seen of the Amelia Lime Green rims from EightInch are shown as almost fluorescent green.

I bought some today and they are more of a light army green, not very light FYI.

Anyone buying lime green rims is guilty of crimes against fashion and should be arrested using whatever force is necessary by the bike police...

Would you say it's more of a key lime than a Persian, then?

Always ask for a PMS number if you're worried about color that much.

Army green, though? Harsh!
