This bike has a lot of respect in the office!
I have officially ‘PINKED’ my bike!”
“I ran across your site right after I order my new bike. Its a Pake frame with bubble gum pink Velocity rims and matching pink wrap on the handle bars. I’ve had it for about one month and already I ride it every day to work (brooklyn to manhattan) and have road it out to montauk. I love it, I feel like its pinkness makes it all the more fun to ride.”

“hi Crystal, .. here’s a link to a few pics of my ‘girly’ fixed gear bike, that my wife is jealous of but is too short (and scared) to ride. the aluminum track frame is built by a small company called LEADER, and it’s fitted with sugino 75 cranks/bottom bracket, easton EC90 carbon fork, truvativ carbon riser bar, thomson stem, velocity wheels and hubs, and extra girly bianchi (faux) leopard fur trimmed saddle.”
