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)

Nessuno Bareknuckle?

So I am obviously shopping for a new track frame, and I came across Nessuno bikes. For $550 frame and fork what do you think about them. I saw a few pics from one frame and the welds looks sloppy, but that just may have been that specific frame. Other than that, are they worth it?

Is that steel used for the frame, "Dedacciai COM 12.5 oversized double-butted tubing" high end stuff? I can't find any info. about the COM series tubing. They have other types, but COM?

I think it is the same stuff as Zero Uno . I could be wrong though. Maybe google both those names.

Another bike called the Viner Competition is made out this steel.
