“Agent Orange” 55cm Custom Single Speed @ Pedal Revolution Refurbished Bicycle Update

This isn’t a color that can be ignored, folks.  When you roll up to the club (or more likely, the cafe) on this steed, all eyes will turn to you and people will ask, “How can that orange look so orange? It’s crazy!!”

Even if the bike doesn’t make you 100% more popular about town, you’ll be the first to know that you’ve got a pretty sweet ride. Campagnolo Record hubs with freshly overhauled bearings are laced to Mavic MA40 rims.  The hubs are in excellent cosmetic and mechanical shape and seem to spin forever.  Definitely couldn’t get much better for a classic single speed wheelset.

Other high quality components include a White Industries freewheel manufactured just up the road in Petaluma.  High-quality bearings, excellent quality of manufacture, and near-instant engagement–it’s all there.  The crankset is a Sugino 75, with new MKS track pedals.  Up front we have a Velo Orange Stem and Nitto handlebars; the brake levers are new IRD Drillium (good ergonomics with the Nitto bar).  Rounding it all out is a Brooks Swallow saddle.

The manufacture of the frame is unknown but it’s definitely Chromoly steel of some kind.  It’s mass produced but not cheaply made–you can tell this by the quality of the dropouts and fork.  If you’re interested in a high quality, unique single speed, come check it out today! Good for a rider around 5’8″ to 5’11”
