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)

1) Pick up trash frame for 25 - 50 bucks
2) Save up for new frame
3) Save cracked frame for practicing frame repair

If you don't want to do it right, take it to the local metalworker (LMW) and have them just weld that bastard. It ain't pretty and technically it will anneal the metal, but what have you got to lose?
