What's wrong with that?! I think it looks alright! Similar to my single speed, is that the same madison flux saddle as well?

Think im running 32 x 19 and its my first single speed. Hard work with my fitness!

Actually, looking in detail at yours its my red frame underneath. Its anodised so gentle paint stripper and you could get back to the lovely red.

Do it!
