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)

how a hub looks

Anyone here think that a silver rear hub laced to black spokes and black rims (in addition to black front hub, spokes and rims) would look odd?

It's either living with this situation to convert bike w/vertical drops to ss/fixed or it's buying a new wheelset; the hub manufacturer doesn't do black.

Any other ideas most welcome.

I do! I think it looks pretty good especially if you have other silver or chrome parts to accent it.
