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 can see tons of fun on this bike, not like the "serious" bikes out there.
as far as I can say (and if you wanna changing parts), try changing the whites with blacks

The yellow ones are on the Panasonic now and don't look so bad there. But why you gotta hate on the Profile cages?

Mostly aesthetic reasons. They're too bulky and chunky looking for me. The plastic screams of cheap, the material they use strikes me as the same stuff they use with sterillite storage container lids. Not to mention profile is all too proud of said cage and scrawl a bigger than needed logo on both sides of each.

Makes sense. But they hold bottles like no other and make no noise with my steel canteens. plus free. mostly because free

Haha I didn't say anything against their usefulness and utility. It would be the complete opposite of what I said about it from a aesthetic standpoint; one of the most functional cages out there. They really bite down on bottles with the built in elastic bands. And if free, I would take them.
