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)

also what's rear spacing?
if 110, I wouldn't pay more than $300 as it must be pain to source matching hubs over there. personally I wouldn't pay more than $500 for a vivalo even if they are in good condition.

How long ago was this? I was on the site recently and it says "We are sorry we stop accepting the order from foreign customers
for the time being".

Fairly recent, like two or three months ago. I had a friend in Japan order the frame and then ship it to me in the states.

It was shipped via Japan's postal service which was trackable through the USPS website. Took about a week, and cost about $50. No customs charges somehow, even though the customs forms were filled out appropriately as a bike worth $350, which is about what the e-framebank price on it was.
