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)

my custom fixed gear with custom powder coat, (must see!) (EYE CANDY!)

this is my custom fixed gear bike, I got all the parts seperate mostly from ebay, the frame came in only black or white I had it powder coated the frame,fork,handlebars,and sprocket. I tryed to match the bianchi celeste color by going with RAL6027.

I really wanted aerospokes but because of my lack of funds I was able to find some wheels that looked like aerospokes, they get the job done.

all in all im pretty happy with my finished results, catch a lot of eyes around town and im worried about thiefs.

anyways what do you think?

Why are you using that crank and where did you even source it from? Follow our collective brilliance and get a front brake if you're going to even bother having a brake.

If a mod can remove the "eye candy" from the title of this thread that'd be great.

whats wrong with the crank? I was trying to save as much cash as possible with this project, I got that crankset on ebay for $14. honestly I never really use the brakes anyway its mainly for emergency stopping only or if im in a sketchy downhill situation with traffic and ****ty streets.
I love my bike its smooth and fast.

Please use some punctuation, my brain hurts from reading this. Also, there should be no welds where that spot is.

All that matters is whether or not you like it.

I don't care for the look of it at all.
