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)

right, i remember that they stopped shipping abroad awhile ago but i don't know if it's still a cheap source for frames while in japan... that's why i wondered about any recent experiences, since i can't get onto the site to see for myself. i remember it having good deals. have you bought anything through the site?

when i got my frame you could only buy one frame a year or something like that, maybe every 6 months. my friend who was an american living in japan bought it for me and they gave her an incredibly hard time, so even if you're in japan you probably won't get it if you're american.

find my old posts covering this. I gave some of my reasons and from eframe bank reason.

They said wait til stock improves to sell but guys didn't want to wait or listen and got people in Japan to order and send them to the States.

They found out and shut it down to all people not living in Japan. You had to keep your word not to sell outside of Japan for profit and use as intended.

Ogata emailed me and stated this was some of the reasons.

I got them once to open up to us when they were down but people thought it was anti American trash but it was not.

S/F,
CEYA!
