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)

New project Hot Rod Fixed Gear

If anybody has any suggestions what to do better with this Hot Rod fixed of mine pls post.



As you can all see it is not yet done. And to be everybody in first with the Question if the backwheel has been installed correctly... it has a double gear. One on the left is fixed, the other ... Not.
Anyway i hope you enjoy these pictures, and add a few good ideas.
Thx and chears!

The third picture looks like you have attached the housing from your rear brake caliper to your front brake caliper. I think you should install either black or chrome BMX cranks on this build. Some chrome Profile cranks with a nice sprocket would fit the hotrod aesthetic pretty well, IMO:
