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)

Okinawa

Are there any keirin builders, track-friendly shops, or keirin-filled garbage dumps one could check out in Okinawa for used/cheap frames parts? Colour me curious.

Not that I know of but they suppose to have a velodrome, and keirin racers do live there. I have not seen a track shop there yet.

I wish I had more time . need info about the little island PM me. Got yrs of experience there.

128 , he wants OKi. No builders in Oki. Just checked. There are 2 shops in Oki that I visited(did not ride a bike during my time(ok Years in Japan).One pro rode shop near Naha.

The velodrome never found it but never search hard enough. I email some body that will know alittle more in Oki.
