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 just ended up keeping the black ones. Put them on my bike to see how they looked and thought they looked pretty cool with the black and silver. Wish I had silver cranks.

Here they are with mks clips and toshi singles.

They are extremely comfortable. Will update if I come across anything bad with them. Or if they crack in half the 1st time I wipe out with them.

black pedals definitely look better on an all-black bike. The silver ones would stick out like a sore thumb.

Yeah, I think the bike is a bit too black. I had a brooks honey saddle and honey bar tape. Took off the bar tape since it was very uncomfortable. And then the saddle didn't look right. So took it off for now. Looking at the black team pro classic.

Think I'm gonna put a few of the decals back on. It's nice you can pick up a new decal set for like $10.

Would also love to get silver crank, chainring, stem, seatpost, and handlebars. And then with the black seat, bar tape, pedals, and frame. Wonder how that would turn out.

Have seen a few steamrollers that look flat out amazing.
