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)

Matte or shiny. But really "all-black" as in "mostly black components". (No stock Kilo Mercier TT etc.)

That's how it always starts. Then one day you decide to up the irony coefficient and stick a few more cards in. Before you know it you're a spoke card junky. Your friends say you've changed and your own mother can hardly recognize you. One night she works up the nerve, tries to tell you to stop, just get rid of those damned cards. But you just glare right back at her as you storm out of the house, slamming the door and shouting, "I'll tell you when I've had enough!"

Be careful with the color matching.. you'll find yourself paying much more for black components, and even spray-painting bolts and whatnot. Believe me, I've been there. I once sprayed my spokes black when the wheel was already built. It worked fine, but the paint isn't at all durable.

That Nagasawa frame is beautiful. Not too crazy about the rest, though. I like the idea with the bars/stem, but the drop is way too much and the ends aren't long enough

All-black is uber-sexy. That nagasawa's intense.

Here's my Jamie Roy that was stolen a month ago, I'm currently working on an economical replacement that'll eventually be all black. I've chosen the Kilo TT for my next bike. Anyhow, here's my IRO.
