Color Inspiration: Fixed-gear Bikes

Looking through the gallery at Fixed Gear Gallery it was easy to find inspiring color palettes from the thousands of user uploaded images of fixed-gear bikes. Here are a few:

Bikes are a great canvas to showcase color compositions, and it doesn't just have to be about painting your frame, with simple color additions in the way of grip tape or saddles, down to the tiniest component, there are many ways of creating a unique color palette, one that could even inspire the people stuck in traffic to ride a bike.

oh man this makes me happy! I see some beautiful bikes every day, wish I could take some pictures. there's a beautiful one that's burgundy with yellow/golden deep v's and it's just beautiful.
bikes 1 & 2 I really like.

lately I've been seeing some great combos on all the fixies in philly. maybe I should start getting some inspiration from them.
