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)

without knowing the model of the bike, it's hard to say. the difference is the tubing, high tinsel vs renolds (or similar)

id guess it's an alright frame, though if looking at it, look closely around the Bottom Bracket shell for cracks, and any other weld joints

Maybe it's the pictures but that "professional" paint job looks like a half-assed rattlecan job.
