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)

a red stripe and a tiny bit of silver is much different that a bunch of blue and anodized pink stuff. just sayin, it looks much more 'all black' than yours.

It was originally all black, but then i added 2-3 silver parts for contrast and then red bar wrap. i like a little bit of complimentary color.

Still waiting for a 100 percent black bike, from chainring bolts to saddle rails to axles and track bolts. I know someone's been crazy enough to do it.

Don't think it's possible to have an all black bike without some spray paint because nuts don't come in black, but this one comes the closest of them all.

That bareknuckle is pretty hot.

There is no reason someone cannot get the little bits powdercoated or anodized. It's all up to how crazy you are. Not saying anyone should do it...

Black frames deserve some silver components, like a silver headset, stem, seatpost, crank, etc.

Trackstar sells black chainring bolts and I've seen black axle nuts somewhere before, I guess the rest you could get powdercoated for pretty cheap since its just a handful of nuts

My raleigh. The bar/stem combo is a big hit. To the nuts.
