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)

okay, so i asked about c-dales....

but i'm toying with a few ideas here. how much should i expect to spend on a pursuit frame? where might be a good spot to start looking for one (aside from cl/ebay)?

depends on the builder, condition, lugwork, paintjob, material (steel/alu/cf) etc. do you want a persuit track frame or are you happy converting a funny bike?

too many variables, price should be relatively similar to a comparable quality track frame.

although not sure how the C-dales thread title ties in with the pursuit frame.

but I'm game.

I'd like a pursuit frame too

^^^ha ha, touche. i'm sure i could find a lot of info that way, the question is how much info i'd find that i need.

basically, i was thinking something along the lines of what 128 said, however, as a subset of track frames, i wasn't sure if the game would change a bit. i really don't know much about pursuit frames, who makes good ones, how much to pay, etc...i figured it'd be a bit different, though.
