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)

Shot looks good. Bike, despite the color combo, looks clean.

Although, it looks as though you could use some form of foot retention, no?

Photography Tip:

At most times you're going to want to have the horizon perfectly horizontal. It would make the first photo muuchh better.

The first photo is a slight hill, a crop would put your wheels on a horizontal plane, but then you'd have your bricks and windows crooked.

Nice shots.

Looks a lot like my bike, only I have black rims/tape. Same Saddle, etc. though.

What cranks are those?

I see images that look like they were taken by a photo student that has learned the technical side of photography, and has a decent grasp of composition, but hasn't realized how to bring it all together by changing his point of view or lens selection. That's the difference between good and great.
