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)

Price Check On This Bike Please

can someone tell me the approximate value of this bike?

bike made by a company called FETISH.the model name in position and was made strictly for track but I threw on a new carbon fork(sorry , I dont know the maker)with option for front brake. It has SUGINO AT cranks , SUZUE Flip Flop rear hub laced to a ALEXRIMS rim, FSA internal headset , TITEC stem and drop bars, I threw a used titanium felt seat on the bike and brand new tires on both f and r rim. The frame is aluminum








thanks

That front fork looks very similar to the fork that comes on the Specialized Sirrus, a hybrid. The Sirrus uses v-brakes and disk brakes, depending on the model. I happen to own one with V-brakes. The fork is designed with a huge amount of clearance between the top of the fork and the tire and it is not made for caliper brakes. Your fork looks identical to the one on my Sirrus except it lacks the needed add-ons on the fork blades for a v or cantilever brake....strange. Yet, look at the clearance between the fork and the wheel. Its huge! There are several inches of space in there. You are going to need one seriously LOOONG reach brake for that thing. I doubt that youll find a front brake with that much reach. WHere did you get this fork. It deson't look like you'll be able to fit any sort of brake on there. I hope I'm wrong of course.

It's a decent frame with fairly cheap components. I'd agree with $350.

If you buy it replace the rear hub asap. They are garbage.

$23.81

Then sell it to me in exchange for the check that my sister wrote me for that amount.
I love random Christmas gifts.
