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)

Where to get a track frame......in Aus??

OK, its harder than it sounds. I'm looking for a track frame along the lines of a Euro Asia brassknuckle, or something like a cannondale Capo or Duratec T8 (I dig fat alloy). The hard part is, where do I look in Australia? Customs will love me if I try and bring a frame in and there is a small market over here. It has to be new, and I have a budget of around $400USD (slightly flexible, depends on what I find)

Are you really attached to aluminum, because this guy has some really sweet vintage steel track frames that are within or pretty close to your budget. http://www.fyxomatosis.com/viewpage.php?page_id=8
edit: Or do what queerpunk said.

there is a fixed gear message board in aus - fixed.org.au
it's not really that active, but you could try asking around there.

also try the regional discussions here.

....and you should ask Andy what he's hiding cause he doesn't list everything.

Only steel.

I think he has an aluminium Daccordi in a 58cm which is pimpin. He'll deny it though.
