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)

Volume Cutter

Anyone know where I could order up a volume cutter?
I've been trying to decide between the FBM Sword, the BWM Gangsta or the Volume Cutter.

Any opinions on these frames?

Thanks

they're all track frames made by BMX companies and people love to do tricks on them...

The Cutter is heavy. I would go with the Sword.

true. i guess if it's steel, i guess it will last.
it won't be long until the first wave of pista-concepts-as-a-freestyle-bike head tubes start having issues.

What one has the integrated head set?

Anyone know where I could find the sword to order online?

Well damn they are all integrated. Does anyone have a good recommendation on a good, strong track frame for freestyle and trick riding?

+1 on none of those bikes being a "track bike".

more like "tarck bike", nothing wrong with that though..but don't get it twisted.
