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)

mercian track frames

anyone on here ever ride one? I saw that bicycle habitat in NY can get 'em...they're only like $700...that seems like a good deal to me and the frames themselves look awesome...anyone have any experience with them or maybe heard anything about them?

yeah, they look awesome...what did she have to say about it? I can' believe the price on them! I"m looking at momo velo and they're asking like $700 for the track frame/fork! that's pretty dman good in my opinion.
