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)

I don't think the bike frames are going to be significantly cheaper. But if you were going to be buy a frame, he might need to pay a fee at customs and or extra luggage fee for the plane ride. So it might break even with an online purchase.

it's going to be a lil cheaper, but the hype in japan is reaching it's peak so STILL be prepared to pay mucho dinero for frames. u'd have better luck buying components.

Yeah maybe...Nitto and Sugino just jacked up their prices in June and it seems this hasn't reflected the US yet.

The short answer is:

Kyoto - Gan Well Pro
Tokyo - Carnival, Blue Lug, Sexon, JAN, Punch, Protech, Recycle Depot

Addresses for most are on this forum site

Unless you mean a proper track racing shop that sells parts to keirin riders for the purpose of racing, then you want to visit
