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)

Meh, haters gone hate. No biggie. I mash hard as Fk on this bike and I love it. You guys seem to be more into the classic retro Italian frame style, hipster long twirled mustache tight Capri jeans type of fixie scene huh? I ride to go fast and do it in my own style, never have received any hate only compliments. This is weird, even on all the tour de fat rides only props. Guess people outside of AZ are just stuck up like that. To each his own.

I was running a front break for years when I rode fixed gear until I got hit by a car and had to replace my fork, when I installed the new fork the front brake didn't fit so I just bought some cable and moved it to the rear. During this time I moved outta the busy city and bought a house in a more rural area and now exclusively ride in a very remote location that has no traffic so haven't bothered adding a front brake.

I've replaced pretty much every part on the bike, it was made by a company in Utah called Loki. They did a great paint job. It's a deep burgendy red with some metallic in it that changes tones from black to red.

Front brake here with Koolstop Xpads(highly recommend) and a good pic to see how the color changes...

Haha! I actually had one, but was forced to return it due to Samsung forcing out an update limiting battery max charge to 60%. S7 Edge now, but it's not as fast and feels small.

I can appreciate a little bling and gold accents but those wheels are an assault on the eyes. The 60/16 gear ratio looks equally ridiculous. Why not 52/14 when you already had the chainring .

Also what's going on with the rear brake hanging out there by himself all redundant like. Or are you running a freewheel but still want to skid and have only one form of brake, I am confuse.

I like the frame though paint looks sick. You should post some photos of the bike with the old wheels and 52t chainring was probably a good looking bike.

Yes, since running 100 gear inches now and doing long distance rides I've switched to freewheel, I explained the brake placement in the post above.

I switched to a big chainring(which I think looks badass) because I snapped my crank arm completely off on my old crankset and and the other side was about to go also. I wanted taller gearing and just picked up up this 60t combo.



Other side...

This is the 2nd time this has happened also, sux. Dat mash power tho

I personally love the way the wheels look especially when the sun hits them, it really draws alot of compliments...

As requested before the wheel change...
