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)

uhhhh.......you can buy about 5 new Windsors for the price of a *new* Samson frame (which would also be nearly impossible for you to buy). Used, you'll be lucky to a get a Samson frame for the cost of a new complete Windsor bike.

That's the whole point of a forum buddy. I never understand why people hang around forums if they're going to complain about someone starting a lot of threads and always direct people to the search function.

the search helps to avoid repeated discussions
there are probably several 'which bike to buy' threads out there so searching helps a lot

go find out for yourself what type of bike you should purchase

I agree. That guy always nags. And he didn't believe me that my neighbor's selling an aerospoke for $100.
But it's in pretty bad condition,lol.

People will never be happy here. It's either "Use search!!" or "Why did you bring up an old thread!!?!"
