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)

Yeah, it's a shame. I suppose some low-profile silver ones (or maybe actual carbon rims?) would be better.

The frame, however, is a work of art.

VRZ 1. is a track bike frame with 3d printed stainless steel lugs glued together with carbon fiber tubes.

this method allows to build custom frames in a short period of time.
you could change the geometry to what ever you like, then the lugs gets generated by a software.
now we just need to print the parts finish them and glue the frame together.

The fork is 480 g and the frame weight is 1100 g (for stainless-Carbon Frame)! if we print the lugs in titanium, it will get even lighter.
The printed lugs could also be used with steel or titan tubes!
Not really liking that bike or construction.The lugs seem to be a lot thicker.I dont know how durable they would be either.You are limmeted to existing tube diameters and shapes.That fork has legs the size of a DH mountain bike.

At this point, there are no guarantees of how tight that is...

Anyway, let's get some of those Icarus frames out of the way:
