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)

Don't decals add 5 hp (or I guess the bike equivalent would be something like subtract 5 lbs)?

I am on the fence about the decals. On the one hand, no decals would be a cleaner, classier look for sure... on the other hand, the rest of the bike is such a blank slate that the decals add a certain visual je ne sais quois.

I think I'd leave them.

This. Plus the white would be nice contrast once they are spinning.

+1 for the decals.

-1 for the tires.

Special place in my heart for Panasonic. I was riding centuries for fun on a Panasonic 2000 before I knew what the word century meant.

For me, the bottom line is that it's a nice bike -- but it isn't worthy of p0rn status.

Plenty of other bikes posted in this thread that are not worthy, I do not consider this bike one of those...

Agree.

Kind of amateurish to get a bike a gussied up like that and not line the tire logos up with the valves.

-1 for the tires themselves, apart from the way they line up.

I can think of about 4692.7 better tires, offhand.

At last, a bike that can be photographed form the non drive side.

And think, if you got a flat, you wouldn't even have to remove the wheel.

I didn't even notice the chain stay. It's belt drive with the belt on the outside of the seat stay???

The whole thing is kinda freaking me out...
