A trio of colours for a perfect fixie

©Barry Sandland/TIMB – A classic road frame reinvented.

“I built this one up myself. I don’t like the idea of store bought fixed gears, so I went online and to shops and found all the components. I have gold, silver and green throughout the bike. If you look at the frame, on the lugs, the edges have been painted gold, so that is the connection.”

Notes: I was about 40 metres away when I saw this bike and almost flipped my own bike turning around to see him. Some bikes just look ideal from any distance. An eighties Colnago with Reynolds 531 tubing. A few decades ago, this would have been an ideal racing frame.
