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)

White with black lug outlines

Anyone have a pic of a white fixie with black lug outlines? I'm thinking of painting my Trek frame like that. I know gloss black is hard to do perfectly, so is gloss white just as hard? Thanks.

You could take a pic of your bike and do it digitally just to see what it looks like.

I am thinking of doing the same thing with a white Fuji I have. I am debating solid black lugs, black lug outlines, or leaving it all white. The digital image helps without having to actually paint the bike.

What a beautiful bike.
I like the white with black outlines on the lugs.
