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)

help with a Pinarello Frame with Pinarello fork

I tried to get an answer in the classic forum but no one replied so I'll try here I have been trying to get a fixed gear for a longgg time but cash is tight so



My LBS offered me a Mint Pinarello frame with a Pinarello fork in mint condition for $250:00 Canadian When I was asking them about a fixed gear bike it looks almost like the frame in the link below . is this a good deal ? http://www.oldskooltrack.com/files/...ello.frame.html

(your link is busted)

is it a track frame? (and actually, it doesn't reall matter, $250 for a pinerello frame and fork is a great deal either way).

if it's a track frame it's a freakin' steal...

Why convert such an nice, vintage bike. Use that $250 and buy an actual track bike and let someone who'll do it justice buy that.

If that bike is being ridden on the street, rather than sitting in a shop, then justice has been done.
