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)

How to buy a Van Dessel CRB?

How do I buy a Van Dessel Country Road Bob at a good price?
No dealers in Canada
Most of the dealer links on VD's site link back to VD, are dead links or have no info about VD's
So who sells these things? Or do I have to get invited to a Tupperware style party where Van Dessels are sold?

To be fair, one of the links worked, listed the price at $800 but I want to have at least another quote. VD list is $900.

Have you tried calling some dealers in the nearby US? I'm sure somebody will take your money.
