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)

That Fuji Track Pro with the front disc was one of the only bikes on the Jackass thread that was universally agreed upon.

Aren't front discs a terribly bad idea in all non track scenarios?

The orlowski was also my desktop for as long as I can remember. And still to this day my favorite bikes on velospace. I try to ignore the fact that it no longer exist, but at least the one that replaced it is effing hot as well!

After seeing this posted in this thread... it's absolute love at first sight for me, everything down to the rim and tires.

I honestly cant express how glad I am that people actually went along with the OP's suggestion and didnt flame him for pasting a bike that was in the jackass thread. There is so much awesome bike porn in this thread I really dont know what to do.

Edit: I know, ill post the bike I have been lusting after!



Im not sure what about this bike does it for me. Maybe the simplicity, maybe the really nicely done color coordination. Regardless, I fricken love it. Though I would have grips on the drops in addition to the top. But w/e. I can imagine them there.

I really like the look of a properly done Concept with drops and a negative rise stem.

And there's nothing I hate more aesthetically than a real big positive rise stem. Yes, I know sprinters do it so they can use a smaller bike for added stiffness but... it looks so damn silly to have deep track drops with a positive rise stem.

Q: does everyone feel that way? i know its dorky, but i'm riding my 60mm threadless stem reversed for positive rise w/my risers for a bit. i really like it. i know it probably is sacrilige. I think if the stem is short it doesnt look that bad.

Although this bike isn't exactly inspiring to me in the sense that I want to make one like it (because it would simply never happen), it is the most perfect fixed-gear bike I could ever hope to see. I realize that the Asymmetric's appeal is very polarized (either you like it like sex or you hate it), but this bike's total build is absolutely beautiful and awe-inspiring to me; even the Brooks isn't too out of place. This 'guch is total bike pron, and if I could ever call a frame/build like this my own, I'm not sure if I would ride it or just, like, encase it in Carbonite or something, to forever preserve its beauty.

Although I'd probably ride it.
