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)

Whatever happened to the mercier/windsor/motobecane cheapo's?

I've been searching ebay for a while now... did the seller get a real online store or something? I know the parts are junk, but I'm just looking for a cheap frame. the seatstay broke loose from the seatcluster on my schwinn world sport conversion, and it's time to say goodbye to this frame.

I don't know what happened to them, I remember seeing them a while back, but why not just get an IRO or Kogswell?

Also I'm not sure how they are, but I know Fetish makes an inexpensive fixed road frame as well. I've seen them sell them on ebay for somewhere in the $150-200 range. I think it's Al.

I scored a moto locally off craigslist for $25 a while ago... craigslist is proably your best bet. Ebay just seems like an online walmart now... nothing goes for a good deal anymore and seems to [cost] more than it's worth most the time.

Thanks for your input. I was thinking all of the same things. I've been appreciating the kogswell g58 for a while, and now I have a reason to drop some cash...
