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)

Used Frame.

Hi guys and gals,

I was wondering if anyone knows of any REALLY good deals on a new or used road frame? I would like to build up a SS for commuting, especially since the weather has started to turn foul. Horizontal or Vertical drop outs not an issue really as I have an ENO hub and could use either. Considering the amount of road salt this ride may end up seeing, I'm not looking at spending a mint on it, maybe about a couple hundred on it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Shane

So Im a her?

I guess im some kind of dolled up david bowie shemale type character.

In any case its great to see ya'll want, need, love, desire an inexpensive fixed gear frame.

Now help me help you! I am making a new version of the frame, and I need input. Lets make this a classic

I already have a cooler then cool brand name, just need your input and possible a name for a steed.

Otherwise ill churn out more steel, roadstyle, sloping, black beasts.. (funny how the redline looks alot like my design..maybe they ripped it off the same place chuckle chuckle)

Post to my thread about input needed on a budget fixie frame

thanks

Ok..now we are hijacking the thread..

If theres enough interest. I can share the how I got the polly name story.

Some men do carry the name. Example pauly shore (please!!!), polly, paulie? (character in greenwich village)

Remember the line? fu polly fu polly.. (sheds tear)

However there is paulygirl beer..
