    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...
