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)

Forgot I had this bike, swapped cranks, forks and pedals around with other bikes in the stable.

Holy crap it's loud, but starting to rust in nicely.

Updated the Kilo WT with some Plant Bike lights. It's now all conditions capable. I'm now running it as SS with 48 x 21 and the rear brake re-installed. The 21T cog remains on the flip side of the hub.

The day I picked her up and the day my life changed:



Took the reflectors, pedals and rear brakes off. Put some Look Keo Classics on, a Garneau bag, steel (cheap) cage and some lights..



This is my main ride.







State Bicycle Co Zombie Stomper - 52
Carbon fiber fork
FSA full orbit headset
FSA BB
Bullhorn bars
48/16 fixed
Look Keo Classic pedalas
Lights and some other small goodies.

Bought this one as I am awaiting the UNDEFEATED to be available... that build will be fun!

Yeah ive done my own decals before, it is super easy. If you have any graphic designer friends just have them redo the art, then send the vector file to a sign shop with vinyl cutter. You then just squeegee them on. Im not sure what your shops would charge to redo the art, but to get the decals made is only 15-25$. If you have a hard time finding a designer or your shops cost too much just message me. Heres how the decals I made my came out.

Is there anyway you can help me find the decal or make one? I'm looking on google for the closest image of the decal so I can maybe bring it to a print shop. I can't private message because the rule says that I need 50 or more posts... i'm getting there..

i talked to a lbs (local banner shop) about making some decals a while ago but i had the artwork done (studying graphic design, did it myself). iirc there was a $20 minimum so i was just gonna get multiple made and sell the rest.
