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)

Hard to find. eBay is your best bet.

Yes, yes, yes, I do have a GT, but not the pulse, I have the GTB. I took it out of mothballs today for a spin to work and back, nice friggin' wind MAN!

I love the GTB, this is one of the nimbilist bikes I own, it's tight, sweet, phat, sick and rad. It blows when compared to my Pista. And now it sports a new B-17. Tomorrow I'm getting rid of the red fork and installing the carbon fork I have on my Schwinn conversion.

I have also found this bike is claimed to have been owned by a couple wrenches in town, but I really can't imagine someone getting rid of this ride, it is so sweet. As much as I enjoy the pliable steel frame, an aluminum frame is like a whole nother world. Beware, aluminum transfers all the jolts in the road. You really feel the tarmac.

There was a hot GT Titanium track bike up on eBay a few months ago....it was very wicked and I have never seen one before. Does anyone know about the Ti frames that GT made? Were they customs?

My GTB is black. I replaced the old head set with a 105 sealed bearing HS, but the steerer was too short, so I used the fork from my Cannondale frame, was really sweet, there are pics up here somewhere, I'll find the link, but everyone thought the red fork was ott.
Well, today I pulled the Trek carbon fork from my conversion and put it on the GTB, it was a sweet frame before, now it is just as sweet, but it's still a bit too small for me. My wrench looked at the four inch difference in the bar plane to the seat plane, and said something about lower back pain. I laughed and hit the Greenway. Sweet!

Damn, I thought that's what he said too.
I was telling someone about that tonight under the spraypaint, there's red on my frame. I've been told they exist, but have no proof.

there was a red gt fork on ebay this week and the seller said it was "supposedly" from a gt track frame in the description.

Would you guys say 350 is a good deal for a GTB frameset and Sugino 75 crank arms? I have the opportunity to pick one up. A guy locally is selling one, but I'm just not sure.

sounds like a good deal to me, as long as everything is in good condition. the cranks alone go for half of that brand new.
