I bought my first fixed gear bike because of that bike... So clean

That is super rad. Thank

That is super rad. Thank you for the comment.

endless threa

Hope its still as nice as the day pics were taken. What size is it looks 53ish. Super Professional model? Working on a similar SSP build with "rising sun" paint scheme. pics to come around valentines day.

This bike was a 54ish but it

This bike was a 54ish but it never really fit me right, so it was parted out. I hope the new owner has kept up the bike as well. It was a Level Pro. Probably the nicest track frame I have ever owned but sadly, too small...

Love the drops! Nice machine

what kind of tires are those?

clement servisio corsa.

clement servisio corsa. Probably spelled wrong.
I wanted some NJS tires because I was obsessed but the tires are only good for a race or two and this was a bike for the street. These tires were pure sexxx.

thanks for the comment.

thanks for the comment. Sorry I haven't been around for a bit.
these are clements. I went with these because this was what the guys at EAI said would hold up best on the streets. The track sew ups are very fragile.

beauty

great bike. do you ride midnight riddaz or wolfpack?

oh man

my bike needs a boyfriend and this one fits standards.

beautiful bike

word. my bike is slutty.

FLAWLESS

thank you.

thank you.

Baller.

I want to defile that bike; put stickers and crap all over it.

Definitely didn't skimp on the build.. The most authentic (and top of the line) kit I've seen on a Keirin bike in the states.

Now get some Kashimax doubles on that shit.

thanks. I built this bike

thanks. I built this bike in 2005 after seeing Keirin racing in Japan for the first time. My goal was to build a Keirin bike that would pass inspection. To me, this is the most beautiful bike I have ever seen.

awesome

Dude that bike is tres cool

thank you!

thank you!

Fuck all of the gossipy high

Fuck all of the gossipy high school bitches on this site. Your bike is great and I am sure you love riding it. Most of the hipster idiot on this site sit around all day talking about how lame everyones bikes are instead of enjoying riding. Ride on!

thanks!

thanks!

I'm just not feelin it...

but obviously alot of people do (bike groupies?)

yeah, you are right. All you haters are right.

yeah, you are right. This bike is stupid. I am going to sell it and build up a 70s girl bike with a banana seat and sissy bars. That is the new shit right there.

CALM DOWN FRANCIS!

remember everyone has an asshole and an opinion....

?

What? I am serious. I sold the bike and build up a lowrider.
http://www.luxurylowrider.com/webbikes/533lowb.jpg
thanks for your asshole opinion regardless.

um..

looks like a cooked noodle draped over your chainring.

yeah

fuck this bike

that is the nicest bike i've

that is the nicest bike i've ever seen in my entire life. who cares about a slack chain?

--
i rather be a drunk biker
then a designated driver

Maybe you should tighten up

Maybe you should tighten up that chain before you take picture.s..

..In the bay we like to get hyphy..

Thanks. You are officially

Thanks. You are officially the 500th person to make the same comment about the chain on my bike between FGG, LA Fixed and this site. There is probably a whole thread about how lame I am because of my chain on bike forums too but I haven't been on that site since 2004, so I don't really know about that one. Unfortunately, I am all out of prizes. However, if you look down the page a few comments, you can try to contact the last guy that made the same comment and maybe he will give you some of his prize.

Just to reiterate, this was one of the first times I rode the bike completed and it did not have a lock ring on it, so I kept shit slack to avoid possibly messing anything up. The chain wasn't really all that slack. Rest assured, On this first ride, we stopped by Orange 20 and got a proper lock ring. When I got home, I put the lock ring on and made the chain so tight that it made a fucked up rubbing noise when I rode it. Regardless, no one ever made fun of my chain being too loose again. Later, the chain snapped and killed a pedestrian.

I just can't win.

OMG thats hilarious

Poor pedestrian. He probably was just trying to got a closer look at your beautiful bike when the thing went off. Hope you are still enjoying this excellent ride.

What he said about the

What he said about the babies.

SINGER

i want to have your babies!!!!!

You have always been a ruling skateboarder.
I just hooked up with the veloculture mag people from SD and they told me they rode with you a few times.
If you are in LA, hit me up at the Kitchen or across the street at Orange 20.

Wait, is that picture of the

Wait, is that picture of the gallery portrait real or photoshopped? Either way, it's pretty awesome.

Why didn't you photoshop the hand from the main picture?

that gallery picture is from

that gallery picture is from a Flickr tool on a website from:
http://www.dumpr.net/

The hand thing is because this was one of the first times I rode the bike finished. It actually wasn't finished because there was no lock ring on there. However, I was so excited I rode it anyways. My friend was excited too. He took these pics all of a sudden. I was bending way back in the pictures to be out of the frame and this is how they came out anyways. I have no photochop skills...

chain

That is a slick looking bike, but please tighten up that chain before somebody gets hurt.

I think it is an optical

I think it is an optical illusion.
it wasn't really that slack.
but okay tuffguy, I tightened it!
secretly, this was one of the first rides on the bike and, um, with no lock ring...

fgg

I like that one. It is a good LeveL. I had my vision though and I had to do it. I had to make this bike. I don't think I will ever have to build another track bike! Your LeveL is dope too!!! I saw it on the FGG. My favorite FGG Keirin bike is:
http://www.fixedgeargallery.com/2005/oct/BlackSheep.htm

this bike is mine

for real, i ran through the proofs a few times. each and every time, the results said that you should give me the bike.
I am glad you agree. Thanks!

So it goes
