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 new Indigo Cycles "Fixielicious"

Ok, so at the request of LBThomps and Marqueemoon here are some pictures of my new Indigo Cycles fixed gear monster cross 29er mutant bike. It was my first fillet brazed frame, so the fillets are structurally sound, but not the prettiest out there. I need to practice, practice.

The paint is the Rustoleum hammered finish enamel that I lightly sanded with 600grit to create a sort of small scale leopard print between the gloss and the matte areas.

It's my first off-road fixed gear, so I'm still learning how to not break my toes between my pedals and various rocks/roots/etc...

Nice! I really like when bikes have a combination of ultra-modern (29'er, disc brake) and retro (brooks, fixed) styling. I'll bet it's a blast to ride.

We need more radical all terrain vehicles that run on beer and sweat.
