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)

Bike Island Fixie Frames

Hey guys,
Just discovered this thread - thanks for all your posts and comments, they've all been helpful.

Anyone have any experience with the homebrew fixie frames that BikeIsland.com sells?
They look half decent:

What are your thoughts?
Thanks

Search for any combo of "mercier," "kilo," or "TT" and you should find plenty of info.
