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)

Need help looking for a SS/fixie in chicago area

i want to make a fixie that will be good for track racing as well since their is a velodrome around 45 min away. i dont want a crazy expensive one nor a 2 dollar junker. something under 300 or around 300. the usual nitto bars, and good low resistence tire etc.

what frames are worth getting? steel, AL? any certain brands i should look at or stay away?

any help would be great

-Steve

It's yojimbosgarage.com

Marcus will treat you right.

That IRO though is a pretty nice looking deal.

I don't think there were any rides at Yojimbos in his range. Maybe try eBay too.
