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)

Yeah, a crank with more rounded edged probably would complement the frame and its curves better. The Phil doesn't look all that bad, just could look better on a different bike

This. Same reason I don't like the stem. All I see is a giant weld on the side and the frame is purposely weld free.

I agree. I found it more comfortable to pucker up your rear end if you ever find yourself riding on one involuntarily.

That Stelbel is beautiful, and a vast improvement on its trying-too-hard predecessor:

I looked at some closeups on their site. Maybe I'm missing the purpose. But it looks like the max you could turn a wrench is 1/4 rotation. And that looks kinda crowded and sketchy unless you use a ratchet with an extension.

Chubby McFatso chain stays aren't my cup of tea either.

Yeah, the dropouts look kinda pretty, but functionally all they do is make it a pain in the ass to use a wrench. My Felt has kinda similar dropouts and they're the one thing I hate about that frame.

The color of both those bikes would be better on a garbage truck or the inside of a factory or prison. The darker one is marginally better but I still can't get past the tapered head tube.

The saddle on the darker one is nice though. Anyone know what it is?
