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)

Ebay Deals

What kind of ebay deals have you guys scored?

I'm feeling pretty good about a New 08 Cannondale Capo complete for $391 + shipping.

I got a pair of velocity fusions laced to nashbar hubs for 92 bucks shipped. They're in great shape and true, too.

I think they went for so cheap because the guy said, "these hubs have OLD bearings" in the listing as opposed to O.L.D. or something so that people knew he meant the type of bearings and not that they were just really ****ing old.

That sounds like an awesome score. Does it have gears? If I decide to coast I want a bike with gears so i keep looking for a good bike, maybe vintage steel but not sure I could deal with down tube shifters. OK, that's another thread entirely.

Yep, geared. It's a '97, so not really vintage, but a solid cro-mo frame. It's designed to be a sport-tourer which means braze-ons for my rack and fenders and geared for touring rather than racing. Pretty much the perfect commuter.

As for DT shifters, they take about 5 minutes to get used to and they're lighter and more reliable than brifters. As long as you're not racing there's really no downside to them.

well i had a nagasawa frame on the way.... and i ended winning the auction for around 180$ converted...then with middle man fees and "free shipping" as it was thrown into the same EMS box = around 215$ shipped for all the said parts

i used to troll YAJ ALOT, looking for frames and parts and google translator was my best friend kinda. i still needed a middle man to ask questions to the seller about frame dents and what size et cetera. middle man fees killed =\. those blogspot guys who have japanese bank accounts and then EMS to america are winnars at the importing game forsure.
