Creating more than a simple fixie

“There is the gold handlebar stem, and there are gold nuts in the crank set. And then silver is more dominant in the front of the bike and gold at the back. And the chain is green..”


Notes: It is an interesting part of the fixie population. There are more and more designs that have the stamp of the owner all over the bike. Just adding the components that the person wants. The style and size of handlebars, a perfect seat. All too often, the store bought version has some level of cheap components that keep the price down, but takes something away from the absolute design. When it is your bike, getting the right mix is all the more important.
