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)

Looks like a crappy attempt at some concept renderings that are actually pretty cool.

no it's not that bad, it's what is on my bike, But if you are building up a "concept" bike you put something good on it.

It's probably just on there for the aesthetics. It is a cool looking crank.

Nobody who knows what track cranks are thinks the Sugino Messenger is cool.

Fork is also a fail -- straight steel fork on your cf wuenderbike? Something carbon with a profile which more closely matches the frame details, like in the concept sketches. Doesn't have to be custom made -- plenty of off the shelf stuff would have worked fine.

Steel frame. Why not a steel fork?

i'm calling this out to be the new direction performance bikes are going.
just look at LOOK's top of the line 596. link
i'll give it 5 years before this is industry standard in SUPERoversized Aluminium/Carpetfibre TUBING ofc.

question is: would the Columbus Gods weep or rejoice?

Don't most bikes utilize triangles because they're rigid? Why does this one use a series of parallelograms?
