    I'm visiting the fam in LA and stopped by a random bike shop today. They had a beautiful Gan well pro, blue sparkly with Dura ace cranks and Suzue promax hubs, not sure what the wheels were. It had a seatpost and a saddle. Missing bars and stem and pedals. We all know these frames go for 1200 new. Just out of curiosity i asked how much he wanted for the bike and he said that he would sell it all for 1200. I know this is probably pricy to most of you but building bike can reach these numbers... if anyone is interested PM me and i can give you the shops info. If it was my size.....

    for that price i think i would def. have one custom made. custom track frames are around that price, and the extra money for the components would be well worth the price for a bike that was made for you i would think. BTW, what was the size? standover?

    ah. i was about to move this to the craigslist/ebay thread and you posted. It was a 53 cm... ya, 1200 is a lot but its such a beautiful frame... and its alsmot complete... all you needs is stem, bars and pedals. the rims were blue. the paint job is spakly, so amazing!

    Is that the one at Budget Cycles in Eagle Rock?

    You know, they'll go a lot lower if you haggle. They've had that thing forever.

    Also, that bike used to have gold drops/stem. I guess someone wanted it them. It was ULTRA hot with the gold stem and bars.

    I've never seen a custom bike for $1200 (not $1200 Canadian anyways). Most custom places charge significantly more than that from what I've seen.

    $1200 isn't a bad deal, considering the frames are not cheap in the first place...and it sounds like the components on it are pretty awesome too!

    So Pink....are ya gonna buy it??

    Ya, I know. Hence the $1000 difference. Plus I already have one track bike that I don't like locking up

    well, from marinoni. Their pista frames are done entirely custom.
    check their website for a dealer near you. or if there's no dealer just contact them directly. You'll have to provide them with your geometry though.
    TIG-ed Columbus Zona with an aluminum fork is $650 +shipping. TiG-ed aluminum (airplane - i think) w/ carbon fork for $750 ish.


    yeah, i know, a marinoni is no gan well. No lugs, no NJS, blah blah blah.
    I was merely pointing out to bikeophile that sub-$1200 custom bikes were readily available in canada.

    Marinoni is one of my suppliers, and you may be able to get a frame for $675..But their custom bikes go for approx. $1500 Canadian. When I was talking $1200 in my previous post I was talking custom bikes not just the frames...Sorry if I wasn't clear.

    Supposedly 3rensho is the chizzang if you can get your hands on one. Obviously no longer available. One went on ebay a few months back for $1600 and change.
    If it's your size, snatch it up if you've always wanted that NJS certification.
    I had my eye on this one: but alas, it was just too small

    As you're riding on Foothill just east of Lowell, heading east it'll be to your left, heading west it'll be to your right, look up at a second story window on a non descript tan building. What do you see stencilled on the glass?

    At the American Cyclery site they also have Cinelli Olympic Track Framesets for $975 under FRAMES.

    http://fixedgear.americancyclery.com/index.html

    It looks like lugged steel.

    I don't understand.

    Is this what you're talking about?

    I saw that address once and realized it was near my parent's home but never really went by to check it out.

    There are about 100 Gan Well Pro frames there, all sizes, rainbow of colors. There are also Nagasawas, Nittos, Anchors... Besides making the EAI cog and the Bare Knuckle, those guys are the importers of the above named frames as well as Araya (rims, wheels) Fujitoshi (double, single straps) Izumi (chains) Kashimax (double, single straps, keirin saddles, top tube protectors) MKS (chain tensioners, pedals, toe clips, double, single straps) Nitto ( frames, bars, stems, seatposts, racks, stands, bottle cages) Hatta (bb, hs) HKK (chains) Strong G (grips) Soyo (grips, cement, tires) Sugino (cranks, bb, rings) Suzue (hubs) Tanabe ( gloves, armor, gear) Yoshida ( grips)...

    They're not a retail operation, so you'll have to go through your bike shop. But here in the US, nobody knows the keirin world better, nor is more connected to the keirin industry than those guys.... just a short distance from your parents.
