Thanks for the link. I'm looking for an orange chain. KMC doesn't seem to have that color. Oh well - wanted one for my Electra Boney Finger.....

Why do you say that? These look like beautiful builds, aside from the loose chain, which is an easy fix. I think if you're going to make negative comments, you should either back them up or not make them at all...

I dont really like the first one. I think the rake of the fork is too much and the tires look huge.

Wow, I knew I was new but dang this thread has been a schooling on "fixies". Not my original intent, I just thought it looked cool, but I now have a better idea of what to look for (and avoid) in a ss.

I want to get my feet wet with one of these sometime this year. I'm still reading up on them. There's a great thread on the 09 models in the Single Speed forum.
