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)

It is the most perfect bike. I've been watching it on Ebay and I hope it goes up more. It is worth more. I hope it goes to a great home though.

That was covered in the Photo sticky. The wheelset is a prototype (sort of) for the Cane Creek Volos track wheels. They have an odd flange design.

and whats with the complete 3rensho going for a 100 less with full campy group. thats messed up.
I think if the seller put NJS or Keirin in his title it would have fetched so much more.

few reasons... people tend to prefer getting frames by themselves and building it up on their own, and a full campy group on a 3rensho is kinda wierd. Also the fork wasnt original. Furthermore, the seller had listed it the previous week, but then cancelled all the bids before it was about to end, before relisting it again. Probably sketched people out. That been said, whoever won got a good deal.

hey 128

that was a beautiful frame, sorry to see it go. looks like you got a fair price (not that i have any idea how to price a bike like that). if i had the money, i'd have tried to snag it for sure.

EDIT: i'm a little behind on the conversation here, but i started my own thread witout bothering to look if there was an existing one. sorry to hear about your medical bills, hope you're okay.
