Thanks. They're an older set of Profile Design 'Stoker' bars. Still available I think.

LOOK KG86. Since this picture was taken, I've installed Dura Ace 25th anniversary headset and brakes. I've also stripped and polished the seatpost and stem.
Shiny,shiny, shiny...

My others are another LOOK, Bianchi, and a Van Dessel
Mine, too. Maximum coolness! -nmTig

My colors and size too. Why don't you ride it around Dallas and leave it unlocked at a 7-11:-)
Dec 5, 2003 11:41 AM
Well...If you rode up on an identical bike in one size larger I'd be happy to swap. :-)

This one is a 54ct/56tt. I would have been better off going one size larger. Oh well! I'm still very happy with it.

Thanks for the compliments fellas.

I don't have a digital cam, so here is the pic from the FUJI website. I recently added cowhorns & a brake (like Peter B's setup).

The heinous saddle is now history. I need a new pic with the new Brooks Champion. '74 Short-coupled Schwinn Paramount. Rare frame, only available in '73 and '74.

Here's my IRO fixed gear. Bontrager carbon fork, Bontrager 31.8 bar/stem combo, Maxm carbon post, Shimano 105 front brake and crankset, Surly hubs laced to Alex v-section rims, Stainless EggBeaters. Now sporting Panaracer 25mm tires... Comes in at about 18.5lbs. I've gotta tell you, its very fast and very comfortable.

Not a great shot, but you'll see better ones soon enough, just keep you eyes peeled.

I believe Doug painted it celeste(or had it painted). Doug? (nm)jtferraro
Dec 10, 2003 1:20 PM
yes; repainted it myselfDougSloan
Dec 15, 2003 10:31 AM
It was flat black. I sanded, primed, then painted it with the Celeste touch up spray from Bianchi USA, then clear coated over that. It's worked out fine. It's a little bit soft; won't chip, but can scratch or peel somewhat easily. Took two cans of paint, but they are small. Got decals from same place.

Is that a poker card in your spokes?biknben
Dec 5, 2003 5:12 PM
What's that red thing near you chainstay? Looks like a poker card.

I thought the days of "cards in the spokes" was behind us. LOL

It's a old picture posted here a while back. I mistook this for a "real" track bike but I think it was once a tourning bike or something. Anyway, I love this bike! I ride it on my Saturday morning club rides. Since this picture was taken I've put on road handlebars (I'm still out of shape to ride on the track), front brake and new "Panasonic" decals. I'll post new pictures shortly.

There isn't enough light to shoot it outside so it had to stay in the garage. Same bike as before, but with purple chainring bolts and new front skewers (not a quick release but hex type which is more to the style of a fixed gear). Sorry for the grubby condition, but as we all know, riding in winter is a mess. Yes, that's a poster of Cippo and Flecha on the wall.

Tig, where did you get the hex bolts?Dave Hickey
Dec 6, 2003 6:32 AM
Very cool. I want a set.
Nashbar's got them, about $10/pr. Black or silver. nmQubeley

Your LBS can get them from their J&B distributer. Screw the web stores! -nmTig

This is my first attempt at a Track or Fixed gear bike... so far I'm loving it. It's my winter/trainer bike!

Where'd you get black brake levers?SenorPedro
Dec 6, 2003 4:49 PM
They look to me like standard shimano fare, but with far cooler ninja blackness. Where to get?

Actually they are....FastFreddy
Dec 7, 2003 8:26 PM
old Dia Compe all black areo levers. Had a friend who had them and never used them so I traded some parts around and they are mine!

Super hard to find... I looked for about 3 weeks everywhere I could think of and couldn't find another set.

Good Luck!
