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)

manufacturer of shimano frames?

i have recently seen a few "shimano" (team) track frame. all white with blue and green on the top tube... who actually manufacturers them?

i remember someone saying rossin or davidson? i wasn't sure if that was correct... and wasn't sure if there was anyone to tell which frames are made by which company...

Since there's no team frame sponsor, it's very possible that they're not even all from the same company.

you can't call that thing a "shimano" frame, it a nagasawa with shimano stickers- but i think thats your point anyway.

Nagasawa built Shimano (keirin?) frame with (full?) 10 pitch group? Hectic.

I'm assuming you're referring to the one for sale on velospace -- that bike has been passed around like a frisbee over the last year or two. It's believed that that one is built by Davidson, but I don't know if it'd ever been confirmed. Nice bike, belonged to a friend of mine originally.
