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)

The "What don't you like about my bike" thread

It's simple....post your bike, people tell you what they like and don't like. I wouldn't post if you are sensitive

I'll start it off


Flame away!

gold chains are for Long Island guidos. Too many risers. Are those the stock pedals with plastic clips? Prefer silver/chrome to black (seatpost, chainring/cranks, stem).

Nice tires.

The bike looks fine, but that wall behind the bike really has to go! Simply vile.

Flame away!
Way too many risers, Stem is facing wrong way (or maybe you like it inclined upwards) Would have gone with Pursuits instead of Bullhorns, you have a front brake, and your saddle looks very uncomfortable. Are you trying to get some kind of individual style with this thing, or are you just going to run mostly stock?

Ditch the stickers on the rims. And the spoke card. And those bars.

Not a riser fan. And please tell me that's not a reflector on the seat tube.
