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)

The container with these frames unloads today!

I am very excited for Jeff at BI to get them photoed and on bikeisland site.

sizes are 49, 53, 56, 59, 62
colors are Black, Orange, Silver, Blue AND Chrome Plated

With very nice fork - they are going to be $199 in paint as intro price
and the Chrome Plated will be $249

frame and fork have WTF spacing so that tires at least 40c can be used [probably could go a bit wide]. Of course, you can still run 23c or 25c - no problem.

Jeff will have pictures better than mine

I think there's a small typo on the frame geometry chart. 507 doesn't seem like the right top tube for a 59cm frame. Did they mean 597?

Other than that, it's the frame of my dreams.

A track frame that I can put a rack, fenders, and fat tires on.

I ordered a plain jane black. I guess I can cancel my Performance Bike SSR now (although for $170 frame/fork, I'm still having a hard time doing so).

Thanks
Jeff decided to add headset and have price reflect included HS

I will ask him to post more pictures in a gallery
as the detail of these frames is really nice and hard to see from BI single pictures

I do not know how Jeff handles that
and payment is the real issue -

please email jeff at bikeisland

my guess is UPS to most areas in Canada is $100 or so

So ****ing nice! That's going to sell like hotcakes. If I was in the market for an ssfg commuter/ ld road bike I'd be all up over that.
