Well, what direction will this build-up take? For starters, I’ve removed the light decals. I have a set of black replacement decals. I’m not likely to put them on. I like the frame simple. I really looks good in person. The photos do not do it justice.
I have taken the fork and handlebar to be powder coated satin black. The handlebar is shinier than the riser stem. I prefer a better match. I also plan the have the seat stem anodized black.
Now for components. Based on recent research and hours of study. Fay [her name] may be the first CF fixie/singlespeed Crank Forward that I can find evidence of. I know Randy Schlitter sees the Citi as a fixie candidate and has a CF in mind. He’ll say more if desired.
I’ll begin to detail in my blog the direction Fay will take. Going in the fixie/single speed setup allows me to save cost & weight over the Shimano Alfine Component Group I originally considered. I want this bike to be as old school as I can remember from a 3-speed or was it single speed I rode earlier in my life. Fixie research is a lot of fun.
I’m hoping to get lots of help & comments here and on my blog.
