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)

depends on the fit and that "list" price he is quoting is for the complete which this isnt, it is a complete bike but its far different as far as components that is listed as the complete from IRO which is where he's getting the price, I'd say hes probably a bit north of the price its worth but if it fits you i'd throw a 350 offer at him and see if he bites, that would be fair.

well 50 cm is reaaaaaaaaally small.

I bet if you don't buy it . . the price will go down simply because there aren't any people that can ride a bike that small. The same goes for bikes over 60cm.
