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)

no. I would pay around $30-50 if it were my size. It's nothing but an old bike with derailers, extra chainrings stripped off

LOL the 52t chainring is the one he took off the same bike to make it a singlespeed.

amazing how people take a plain 20+ year old road bike and take parts OFF and try to pass it off as something that is worth that asking price of $275..

Very sad.
