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)

If it has armadillos, and with the surley/mavic combo, it might be worth something. But I don't know about that frame. I can't decide if I like that "half boy/half girl" style top tube. And it is just a road conversion.

i'd say no; manganese steel is nothing special, and that frame is bizarre.
get him down to $150 and it's probably worth it for parts.

Ya..I agree with you guys.. I think the frame is really weird but I am actually more interested in the rest of the parts mainly the rear wheel and the fork. I have a old road bike that I converted into a single speed(currently using a mtb front fork and wheel, I crashed a while ago and bent the road fork) and want to finish the conversion to fixed.
Thanks for the input,
Luke
