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)

I dig it, looks really clean. Only thing I would change is adding a silver stem or keeping the current stem and getting black spacers.

I'm planning on getting a black seatpost soon-ish. I'm also in the process of painting the spacers black, just waiting for the primer to dry.

Nice! My favorite so far.

I want a path racer to throw some 700x40 tires and 8-12 gear internal hub on. One day, one day...

there is something about this picture I really love. I have always held a special place in my heart for grey tires ever since I was a kid, not sure why

I had this bike before in red I think it was this one..I mean model. It had the clover badge stamped out on the dropout so u could see the bottom bracket axle thru? anyways it was a late 60s or 70s model i think..anyways I got hit by a ****ing TTC truck in Toronto and the frame and wheels were toast. I saved the crankset which you can see on my current bike pic..

Just a cheapo Giordano Rapido. it's practically a custom build, ony part on it still original is the headset and front fork. I love this little thing. But i'm thinking of upgrading the frame. Taken earlier Halfway into a 45 mile ride. Gearing is 48 x 16. Pursuit bars, more comfortable than drop bars to me.

Mine. Swapping out the crankset for something black soon (too much rotational green) and getting a Paul duplex lever then I'm done with this cheapo. Also I need to chop my steer tube so I can minimize the smoke stack effect happening with all those spacers and SLAM THAT STEM!
