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)

you could disguise your bmx with aerospokes, a turbo saddle and a top tube protector, and hope the cool kids buy it. they probably will.

On a BMX bike, they're called Skyway Tuffs, not Aerospokes. And top tube protectors on BMX bikes are as old as the day is long!

blue frames are so hard to deal with in terms of matching with other colors, but that's just me. Try this site out to maybe help you out: https://www.pedalmafia.com/mafid/mafia_id.html

Yellow is too tacky. The tires look a little grey-ish, so I assume the blue is darker and it's just the photo. Honestly, I'd say gold.

The blue angels use "golden" yellow, which is much warmer.

Go with a tasteful mix of lime green, electric orange, hot pink, teal, and purple.

My dad went to the Naval Academy and he's like old school Navy, so he always says stuff like, "Ahhh the good ole' navy blue and gold!"

That's probably where I get it from.

so, I'm sure this is in this thread somewhere, but what size, are what height people riding out there?? I'm 6ft tall, and can't decide if i should get the 53 or 57. I've ridden a 53 khs flite 100 which fit fine. But it seems from the geometry specs that the kilo is a bit different, i.e. longer top tube, shorter seat tube. So what do you think, or direct me to the proper page area in this thread. Thanks
