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)

World Class Cycles has a website that hasn't been updated in about two years.

DA7600s or the Suzues? I can imagine them still having Suzues at the old prices, but I seriously doubt they have the DAs in stock...

...and a quick phone call confims that they don't.

Funny enough didn't even plan on getting the hubs, called to order some cleats and noticed the price.

I love World Class! They're great to deal with, and they always have amazing prices. If it weren't faux pas to order online and take parts to the LBS, I would probably order from them every time.

build them yourself, it's not hard, really it's not.

if you're not comfortable doing that, lace 'em up yourself, get them close to round and true, then take them to the lbs, confess your sins and ask them to help you out.

they might make fun of you, but they'll true and tension them for WAY less than a complete build.

Haha, I just don't get it.
Business Cycles, BikeWorks, Yojimbos, Yellow Jersey all have garbage sites.
Aw well.

They are busy selling and talking to all of us, instead of creating a flashy website. Damn they are fast, got my **** today.

I like the Business Cycles site. Lots of pictures. And Yojimbos is easy to work with via email, which I would prefer anyhow. I like my anonymous internet shopping to have a personal side.
