Great pics!

I must admit I do prefer the green ones! ;-)

Here is a picture of my tangerine Singlespeed. Same model as yours I think but with a crafty rear brake adapter. The addition of the dropper post with remote makes it handle like a BMX on downhills. It's a 'working' bike so excuse the fact it looks a bit rough (mostly mud!).

Wheels finished and frame part built.

Now just waiting for another singlespeed kit (Superstar rear hub kit) that got 'lost' in the post!

You`ve got great tast with that colour scheme and all.

The white forks were a little overkill but the touch of white in the seat is smart.

When you`re asking for stem, seat post recommendations; are you asking what people like from a functional point of view or esthetic point of you?

Mainly looks to be honest. Don't know whether or not to go down the classic Syncros post, Flite seat, etc, etc?

It would look better with a chain ;)

If I were you I would be very happy with the aesthetic right now but perhaps keep an eye out as funds come up for other jewelry.
