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)

Couple Track Pro questions.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=170068421355

Is this sketchy? According to the Fuji website, this is a 2002, the auction says it's a 2004.

Also, is the front fork on the 2002s drilled for a brake? The Fuji website never says anything or show any pictures to show either situation.

I mean, if the reserve isn't too high it sounds like a good deal, I just don't want to get screwed.

mine's a 2004 and def looks different from that one. mine is not drilled for a brake (at least it wasnt until i swapped forks).

they're nice bikes. the seatpost appears to be shimmed, which could be a bad thing or could be nothing. it all depends what you've got and what you're willing to risk. i'd ask lots of questions.

Yeah, I've sent this guy, like, 6 questions. He's responded to 0 of them. This isn't looking like something I want to be involved in.

Oh well.

the 2002 seems to have a different top tube from the 2004 to current frames.

Give him a little time- not all ebay people are internet nerds and spend all day online.

You do realize the auction is for frame/fork only, right? Looks like a good deal- he says it was only ridden on rollers.

Ok, so, he did get back to me with good answers to my questions. Also, yes, I realize it's frame and fork only, thanks.
