An Australian company has started selling a line of SS, fixed gear and internal hub gear bikes that look, to me anyway, fairly eye catching. From the growing number of single speed & fashion commuters I see in here in SF, this seems to be a trend that's increasing in popularity. Can't say that I'm a huge fan yet but I'm not a hater either - more intrigued really.

I don't like how the rear wheel fits on the TT-style frames. It needs to miror the shape made for it.

Generally I like the sleek look of SS bikes but I change gear too often to consider one as a serious option. Then again, I don't pose around town.

The 'sleek' coloured bikes look like a bog standard 'open mould' type Taiwanese frame that are sold by several dealers in the UK as time trial frames but with track ends rather than gear hangers.
