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)

So someone mentioned earlier that it's hard to paint a kilo, why? I was thinking about doing it...

You can't paint a Kilo. Don't even try.

Painting a Kilo is unlike painting any other bike or object. Completely different.

Because it's sacrilegious or because it's difficult?

Sweet ride, ditch the reflectors and get some real lights. Maybe some foot retention too.

I would start save the money for silver brakes and white cables. For the sake of art.

Nice ride, try red tires next time, it will make the bike pop out more. White is a bit plain.

Get black, red would look:

Change your bar tape to match your saddle = win.

Personally, if that was my bike, I would change the tires, bar tape, and saddle to black. since you already have a white saddle switching the bar tape to white would look great, even better if you switched the tires to black ones.

It's all up to you though. If you think your bike looks good then leave it be!
