    Cool-blue Rhythm Where to get cool bling bling?

    So, I'm working on my first single speed project, repainting a 98 mongoose steel frame, and looking for cool little bling for it. By this I mean things like a custom head bage (skull and crossbones?) - bar end caps, etc.

    Anyone have good suggestions on bling and where to get it?

    You don't get blingier than 100% platinum encrusted with 5 carats of ice:

    Yes! I sing as I sneak through the parking lot, looking for that perfect BMW hood bling to become my next headbadge...

    Bling is where you find it. Swap meets. Junk shops. Gumball machines.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Those are like the headbadge on my geared bike, but the enamle ones would be hard to fasten to the frame. They make bendable badges, mine was a spare tank badge from my motorized bike rebuild.

    Other ideas: (not mine)
    I have read of people cutting up their favorite beer can for a headbadge, or soak the label of your favorite bottle and stick that on there. put some clear tape over the top. The beer can (it was PBR) looked pretty slick.

    or you could just shrink down a bottle and hang it from your seat pack:

    dang!

    You guys crack me up...think I'm gonna like this single speed attitude. I was seriously looking though for at least some custom bar-caps and head badge, I know I've seen them around, just can't find the posts...

    And who would dare make such a small bottle of beer?!

    Fast Freddy is the man for top caps.
    I liked them so much that I bought 2 and brought them all the way home to Australia with me.
    Jenson has ODI lock on clamps in various colours if that floats your boat.
    Also Salsa and Hope for coloured seat clamps and skewers.
    FSA make inexpensive but decent headsets in anodised colours too.

    Not sure if that is the sort of stuff you want?!?!?

    Then You would have to change your name to " 2 cog frog "

    Sorry,These aren't for sale, I just got the BIGGIE SIZE cogs from Boone so I could go single in the N.C. mtns. They look nice but you definately have to be patient to get them.
