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)

I'm down, as long as the frame prices aren't too high; how does one determine the price of a frame?

hmm....$340 + shipping for the frame i want...it's almost too good to pass up, but i just bought a new BMX frame, and still haven't gotten rid of my old one. and i'd have to get rid of yet another bike to make room/money, and there's really nothing wrong with any of my bikes at the moment...but the temptation is still there.

Do they have a shipping deal for three or more?
Some of those frames are awfully temping.
e-framebank is such a smorgasbord for us shorter folk.

When I click on the link I can some numbers, but everything else is in Japanese. Which catagory is the seatpost size? (edit) I meant to ask which one is the seat tube size?

What's up with eframebank? In the beginning weren't the frames really cheap, like $200 or something?
Now they cut off multiple shipping discounts, the larger/smaller sizes not being sold anymore, and shaft you on the somewhat sh!tty conversion rate.
I guess they finally realized that their frames were not going to budding track racers, but rather to_____ [fill in the blank].

Exactly. I was wondering how long before they cut off overseas orders totally. The fg craze would suck dry the availability of used frames for the intended recipients.

Time for them to break out the release forms where you promise to only use them on a velo.
