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)

Help pick new frame

Help me decide what to do. I'm at a loss.

Yea I'm looking for a kind of beater trick bike. I have a conversion that i use for serious bizznesss and commuting. So I want to build just a fun bike. Which of these frames would be best for triX. That or recommend me another frame.

I forgot to add the iro mark v in the poll.

I just got a kick ass deal on a used but never used frame off eBay. About 300 off what it would have cost new. The deals are out there. you just have to have the money ready to go and do your daily shopping.

Yea I've been trying. It seems whenever I find a good deal I don't have the money. It's a bummer. I'm stil searching though.

there are a million frames you could get. if you want cheap and light, do what i did for my beater and get the SE frame from bikeisland.com (its brown) and add their $90 kinesis carbon fork. you will have spent less than $200 shipped. Its a very tough/light combo. Look at my flickr to see it.
