cog necklace 2 Cog Necklace

This cog necklace is pretty blingin’, considering it was once a functioning part on someone’s bike. If your looking to accessorize yourself in efforts to display you love for fixed gear riding, creating your own cog necklace might be of interest. FYI- From what I hear, it takes a good amount of elbow grease to transform a used cog into a piece of jewelry like this one. However, it can be done.

If your looking for the perfect messenger bag to throw over your should before saddeling up on that track bike, but you’re looking to keep the price down, make one yourself using things you have around your house. To make your own courier bag you will need an iron, plastic bags, wax paper, scissors, buckles, Velcro, and something to sew with. The out come is a one of a kind messenger bag that’s bound to turn a few heads.

b 300x225 Japanese Version Of Bianchi Pist

To my surprise the Japanese know a different Bianchi Pista then other parts of the world and in many of there fan’s opinions Bianchi has beefed it up for Japan when compared to the states. Not only does the Japanese color scheme appeal more to the eyes of an urban fixed gear rider so does the enhanced frame and forks. That’s right… And for around the same retail price ($500 – $600 USD), too. I can just imagine how stunning this bike would look like in other similar colors.

Supreme is giving fixed gear fans a tasteful U-lock alternative with their version of what they consider to be a fashionable bike lock. Supreme’s bike lock comes in a black or red chain-sleeve with Supreme written in white. If the U-lock wasn’t so easy to travel with, I’d go with Supreme.

An ugly chick flying down the street can be masked by the beauty of Aerospoke wheels, a vibrant color scheme, and a few hipster accessories the same way “celebrity sunglasses” can enhance almost any chicks appeal. However, we’d like to believe there is some true beauty shared between both rider and fixie in this photo shoot.
