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)

Anyone knows about Eurasia tracksatr?

Hi,

I want to swtich to fixe gear on my daily commute and I never rode a fixie before.

There is a 1 year old "eurasia trackstar" for sale for $500. But I cannot find enough information about this brand except that trackstar is a fixie shop in NYC.

Does anyone here know this brand? Is it good/reliable? How much does a new one cost?

Thanks!

Euro-asia importing (EAI) is a company that makes the Bareknuckle and Brassknuckle frames. Trackstar is a shop in New York that sells components and rebrands some stuff. Neither sells a complete bike, so I'm not sure what the listing you're seeing is referring to is....

"The frame alone is worth a lot."

But yet, the seller doesnt know the make/model of the frame...?

"Nitto handlebars pointing up."

aka bullhorns.

Either the seller is an idiot or it's stolen and the ad description is as good as the seller/thief can come up with.

Originally, I thought the make/model is eurasia/trackstar....

Later on, when I found out that trackstar is a NYC fixie shop, I thought it is the name of the fixie frame built by this shop.

This statement is somehow suspicious to me too... This is the first time I see people call bullhorn "pointing up".

Do not want to buy a stolen bike though.

NYC bicycle thief is notorious. that is why I have to pay $50/month to a garage to park my commute bike. So I don't want to finance a thief.
