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)

cannondale as frameset?

i like the track bike, and while the components are nice (dura-ace, ultegra bb, etc)...i wonder if the frameset is available, and for how much?

i'm debating the purchase of an aluminum frame here. not totally sure.

Cannondale will sell you any of their bikes as a frameset but they tend to price them to make it so that you should buy the full bike. If you work at a C'Dale shop or ride for one you can get smoking pro deals on the frames though...pro deal for a CAAD9 road frame is less than $500.

It isn't. I don't know how they are doing that but that is rediculously cheap. Like, less than I would pay working at a Cannondale dealer.

Do you guys have a link to a picture of the CAAD9 track frame? I cannot see it on the site; maybe I am getting dumber?
