Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Casati Cromor Track

Anyone have any experience with the 'Casati Cromor Track' frame?

R & A in Brooklyn is selling them for $400. Looks good but can't get any info on it

DW is talking about the raw cost of the tubing, as he's a framebuilder. The raw tubes cost $40 for a set, and then you have to weld them together, align, paint, finish etc. the frame. That is how $40 in raw material turns into a $400 frame.

That frame looks nice. It's a shame they only have a 56 and a 59. Nice to know a Colnago sans fork still costs upwards of $1.5K

No harm, no foul.

FWIW, using those those "emoticon" doohikeys makes me feel like a 13 year old girl on AIM.
