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)

A custom Mercian fixed gear. custom frames for $1000 and up.
Velouria, the bike owner, went for a more relaxed geometry with no toe overlap. wider tires, too. Reminds me of my Bianchi San Jose is geometry; also a very useful bike.



nice cycling blog

A tasteful Leader, which is so rare for me, that I consider it better than porn. Much like side-boob in movies.

That's not tasteful, it's covered in stickers. It's fine but not tasteful.

Its my opinion that even stickers could be applied in tasteful, as well as tasteless ways. I believe that Leader was of the former.

I didn't particularly like the stickers on that leader (also, bmx pedals), but I have to admit it I can only go so long before putting a few stickers on my bike.

Usually the justification is a result of a 'personal expression' thing and 'try to make my bike look like **** so it doesn't look attractive to thieves.'

Tends to be much more of the latter.

The rules:

-Not your own bike, if someone was to put it in there
-Photos are to be work safe.
-If it looks jackass worthy it is not to be put in this thread.

If a bike is truly breathtaking, just works and the lines flow exceptionally well.

Examples:

Really guys? I posted one geared bike and you're choosing to do this now? Go back one page before me. And the one before that. And probably the one before that. There are geared bikes on the front page.
