My Fixie

Hey Guys,

Thought I'd just post some pictures of my Fixie and ask what you lot think of her.

Cheers

I'm not sure which color I'm not digging, the black or the white. It's such a toss-up. Me, personally, I like black, generally. I think I have just seen so many matte black bikes lately.

Otherwise, it's deep-dish pizzarific. Go ride!

are those starz 51s?

i don't dislike it but i also have zero respect for it if it isn't ridden fast. like, "you should be dropping me and i have to choke out a defeated 'how!??!?' as you disappear in the distance," fast. if that's a coffee shop bike, dear god help us all. firstly, it clearly doesn't fit. secondly, it needs silver hubs and spokes. thirdly, components are all low quality no-name. fourthly, polkadot bikini.
