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)

good colors

suggested colors for kilo tt? Either orange, black, green frame. I want something that stands out, but looks decent. Ideas?

Too bad there's not a huge thread in here with a ton of pictures of people's kilos in here. People with all different sorts of parts showing what you might think looks good and able to offer opinions.

That would be rad.

Edit: Okay, so as not to be a complete dickbag.

Here's a good place to look http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread.php?t=305822

stands out, and looks decent are not really able to be achieved since there are already so many green, orange, and esp black bikes. You aren't going to stand out from a bunch of other bikes with any of those colors

I'm looking at getting a black TT around Christmas, or shortly after. I'm planning on working my way around to the whole murdered-out thing. Not anywhere close to original, but I dig the look.

I've toyed with the idea of getting a brown Brooks saddle and the matching Brooks bar tape for a black/metal/leather color scheme, which I've seen before and it looked fantastic, but that would be way too expensive for me right now. $80 bar tape = OMGWTFBBQRIDICULOUS.
