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)

Yep, then sold it. Then managed to get the Aerospoke back. Currently sitting on the front of my TK2. Loving every minute of it. Hate on it all you want, really will not bother me at all. Nothing about the bike is right, yet it is sooooo right for me.

Zinga? Nah. Never denied it. Posted pics of it. Never regretted it once. So I question someones bar tape color choice, and get the shake down. Makes sense.

an aerospoke in 2016 is like admitting to everyone that you still shop at old navy.

Testing fender fitment during initial build. Still haven't put them on. Not sure I will.

Yay or nay?

Lovin' that bike.
This photograph is great! Timing the position of the ship really adds to the overall effect.

Hi! I'm new here, i just want know your opinion; I want to build a little bit retro looking, not fashion fixie/ss. The frame is an Atala Olympic(?- i didnt find too much information about atala corsa/olympic with tullio tubing) with original painting. I bought these wheels because i use it in the city with really bad roads, so i need strong rims.
I want a relatively serious looking bike, what do you think?

Sorry for the quality and the enviorment, but i built it just a few days ago.

Looks decent, wheels are probably overkill though. Maybe throw some toe clips and straps on the pedals.
