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)

meh, i do like the frame minus the paint job. at $1000 though, it's too hard to justify actually paying for it... ****ing keirin frame inflation. i'm sure the prices are about to start dipping again now that winters starting.

The flame paint job sucks but I'm loving the double "aero" seatstay bridge.

I think the price is dipping because there are SO MANY ****ING TRACK BIKES now. And once a few companies get their lugged Maxway frames out on the internet, I expect prices to drop even further.

that frame is absolutely incredible. it makes me so happy to see craftsmanship going into frames that goes beyond shaped lugwork (which i also love). who cares about that paintjob when you've got that tubeset? the bottom bracket cluster alone is worth it alone. there is so much skill and innovative design put into that bike that i would be honored to ride it. and did andrew say the price is $1000? considering what it would cost to get something like that custom built in the states, that's not as outrageous as it could be. its certainly worth more than your average tange prestige and long shen lugged njs frame.

but you guys are totally right, its not nearly as cool as your kilo tt.

I'd buy it but I'd be afraid all the bums would piss on it trying to put the fire out.

I think the flames are really nice, but like I said, I like different whats so great about everything being liked by everyone? the reasons most of you dont like the frame are prob the reasons the OP likes it I ride a bike thats not worth a second look to most of you but I still ride it, and Ive seen more than a few bikes right here on this forum that I think are butt ugly, but Id ride with any of them in a minute! if you like it, and can get it anytime in the future, Go for it! Ill be looking for you on the road!
