red and blue should be the only "glitter" colors.

i was really counting on a glitter black for my girlfriend. also, a while back you mentioned dropping some more feminine colors in smaller frame sizes. pinks, candy colors and such. is that still in the works, and when can we expect to see those come out. AND can you show us some colors you had in mind for the girls?

Yes
we have a load coming with 2 different Pinks, grape soda, creamcicle, keyLime, and SkyBlue
in 44c, 47c, 50c, 53c

These should be in late July or Early August {I am really pushing factory to increase and/or speed up our shipments}

and with some special extra decals in the parts box suggested by my wife
{these are not on bike - just a little fun bonus}

I am very glad you ask
the newsletter is the best way

We try to post all new items and colors and sizes thru newsletter so that those that sign up find out first

We do not send out Spam - so request thru newsletter is best way to go

Thanks for your interest

Got my glitter blue kilo today and threw it together pretty quickly. Still will have to get dialed in a bit but it is a great bike for the money.

The glitter blue color is really hard to get a good picture of here are my few attempts at it:

is this bike supposed to make any noise? I was sorta under the impression that they were pretty silent... Sounds like pretty soft grinding from the rear hub/cog. Anyway... I'm adjusting pretty well to my first fixie and it is a whole lot of fun!

cbeyer2, check your cog's chainline. Helps if you have a caliper handy. Then tighten down the drive side crank till the chainline matches the rear cog's. Should quiet things down a bit. Wonderful feeling.

Hmm okay. I keep getting different sizes from everyone. I guess I'll just wait until tomorrow when I get my bike. I knew I should have ordered a 3/32" cog.

Also anybody knows the exact tools I need to install a new chain ring? Also if as long as I get a 130 BCD chain ring it will fit right?
