    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.
