One man’s trash…

Is another man’s treasure.

We love the fact that this rider found this frame in a trash and converted to a perfectly functioning single speed bike. Not only this bike is functioning but it is a damn good looking also.

Call it what you want: going green, recycling… etc, but this is how street fixed gear/single speed cycling started. You take an old frame and convert it to a kick ass street bike. No need to spend thousands of dollars on a brand new shiny bike.

Here is some info from Cody, rider who put together this bike:

“I have a single speed road bike, frame is by Mohawk. I originally found this bike in the trash, I’ve put some Alex DA28 Rims and Vittoria Rando’s and a San Marco Rolls saddle, everything else is original. I live in Cape Coral, Florida. Just thought I would show you guys what I’m working on.”  Our hats go off to you Cody for a job well done. Let us know if you do any other mods on this bike.

Here are some pics for you to enjoy:

Awesome photographs of Kansai craftsman at work

Here are some photographs, captured by photographer Jess Carmody. He traveled to Japan and captured some awesome photographs of Kusaka San. Kusaka San is a master bike builder for companies Kinfolk Bikes and Vivalo Bicyles. Jess Carmody did a really good job capturing Kusaka hard at work as he sculpts a bike out of raw metal.

LeMond Buenes Aires single speed conversion.

About a week ago, one of our fans decided to take a plunge and convert her old LeMond Buenes Aires bike to a single speed.  Since she haven’t been riding in a while, she decided to wait on a fixed gear setup and to start with single speed…  just to be safe.

We decided to take her bike to 66Fixed bike shop and after talking to Michael about options, we decided to keep it simple.  Michael did a nice job doing a quick single speed conversion on the rear wheel and the crankset.  To add a little bit of style to her bike, she chose some yellow and red tires and a pair of nice black pedals… hey, nothing like pimping out your first fixie/single speed bike.

Here are some pics we’ve taken of her “new” Lemond bike on a test ride around downtown Saint Petersburg Florida.
