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)

I really like your paint a lot. But do me a favor and align your brake levers, and get yourself a white or blue water bottle.

I think it's a cool paintjob and all, but do you really need six different threads dedicated to your bike?

Lol, you guys shouldn't be so mean. He did spend time trying to make his bike look good and put on a pretty good paint job (design aside), so kudos to your effort. And if you think it looks fine, then don't let anyone get to you with their opinion about it.

But to me, the color scheme/design could've been... different.

Yeah like I said I think it's a fine bike. Hell, i'd ride the **** out of it it... it looks fast and if you're moving at any kinda speed no one will know it has a skull and flames all over it.

I just think it's dumb to make six threads and post the same four pictures in all of them.

At least take some new pictures.

since the OP is trying to get a thread about paint jobs, this is in no way fancy, or even a "track" bike (though it is SS) but i did paint my own bike a couple months back...







there, now it's not just about his bike anymore

it's a mish-mash of parts.

meta frame, stem, bars, cranks, BB
zoo! fork
king headset
try-all wheels
planet x pedals
echo brakes

the echo's don't actually work as well as hs-33's, they are prone to leaking (and mine do) but at least the levers are sex
