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)

No pics right now... But in general...

(no particular order)
- Blue Cannondale Track
- Black GT Track
- Gold Nagasawa
- Black Pista Concept

If people have pics of any of these bikes, please post up.

Most people have really nice builds with those frames.

That Orlowski was gorgeous. Too bad it was destroyed in a car wreck.

Def. can dig it. At first I thought the GT was my friends bike. Pretty much the same set up. Double Aerospoke, risers (cept with black Ourys) and a TT pad. (Assuming yours is a BMX TT pad?)

i'm not too crazy about this bike, but it did inspire me to do red deep vs/red chris king on my iro build. i'm a minimalist, so that's all the color coordination i need on my bike. red grips and crankset are too much.

This bike has been my desktop for almost a year, and I don't get tired of it. That's definitely the one I pick.



Edit,

Holy crap, are we reaching a consensus or something?

The Yamaguchi/Orlowski pairs, along with the Colnago, are also beautiful.
