Yeah ive had more than one LBS say that. The bikes dont exist for sale anywhere in this years model. Again, i dont want a Fuji.
Id rather have a KHS. But in japan they dont come in anything over 53...lame. I dont get it because that has been the story on a handful of the models i have checked out.
I have found some keirin frames but yeah, theyre a lot more money and im looking for entry level. Ive never had a fixie so i dont wanna drop a US grand on one.
Im about this close > < to just giving up.
Because ive been hunting for well over a month now.
