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)

i wasn't aware that the mercier/khs stock was also what spicer used, but my question is this: why is that frame so goddamn expensive?!? buying the mercier complete (obviously where the different in price comes for COMPLETE mercier v.s. khs) is only 3small. 25 bucks for two wheels (tires and tubes), bars, stem, hs, cranks, bb, etc? WOAH. at that price i'd rather get a mark v.

You will probably break even, with ebay/paypal fees, etc. Looks like the seller is selling the frame/fork, and the wheels...doubt he'll get much more than $300 for that, then subtract $15 of fees...
