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)

Nitto NJS Track Frame

So, just before I disappear for two months, I wanted to grace you all with something very special.

I'm too lazy to host it, so if image shack dies, meh. Save or rehost the pic if you want.

Have fun, kiddos!

1500 is a lot for a frame that wasn't built for you.

i've been knocking a similar idea around for a while. namely, how much is too much for a non-custom steel or aluminum frameset.

i've really been digging on the colnago master x-light pista as of late, but at ~$1200 i wonder if i'd be better off spending a bit more on a "entry level" custom.
