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)

cross lake sales?

Anyone familiar with Cross Lake Sales?

http://www.crosslakesales.com/Items/...0Bicycle%20NEW

They have track bikes in the sub-$300 range, no decals, "made by a major bike manufacturer, not just a brand, the people who actually build the bikes for the brand names you know". Bikes appear frequently on eBay for $50 cheaper, same shipping costs.

Looking for comments, thoughts, etc. It's heavier than a Kilo TT, and it looks like there's nubs on the frame to hold down brake lines (?) on the top bar. All black looks pretty.

Dood, stop ceating threads without searching first, you will get flamed to hell for it. Both your threads can be answered very easily be searching; the Crosslakes bike has been covered lately in a couple of threads.

Sorry, I searched "cross lake sales" which returns zero hits.
"crosslake sales" does return one relevant hit. Thanks for the heads-up.

i say go ahead and buy it
so we can finally have somebody to review it

these crosslakes posts (/reposts) have come up 2-3 times a month (frequently)

if you can't be silent and patient for a BD bike, just splurge to your hearts desire.
tell us about your buyer's remorse later.
