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)

Anyone ever build their own track bike?

That red one looks pretty nice. Lot of money though, but looks like you would learn a lot. Found this on ebay.

Does anyone have any opinions on the yamaguchi classes vs. the classes taught at the bicycle university in ashland, OR? The Yamaguchi classes seem to be smaller, which is always a plus, but I've heard great things first hand, and seen work from the one in Ashland. Help!

I asked this question over in the frameuilders forum not too long agohttp://bikeforums.net/showthread.php?t=249403 You could take a look. I have decided to go to Yamaguchi, but don't know when yet. Work is crazy but I hope I can go soon.
