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)

Thinking its time for a new bike

I wanna sell my Langster and get something else, but i cant decide what i wanna get. I really like the Cannondale Capo's and also the Volume Cutter along with some others that i cant think of off the top of my head.

You guys have any suggestions for a new bike? Thanks

I would personally get the Capo if it is in your budget.

And how could you compare a Capo and a Volume Cutter?

you could probably fetch @ least $400 for your langster if it's in good shape

what kind of riding do you want to do? that will help narrow down the suggestions

that's silly, especially if he doesn't have the funds to afford a new bike now.

I would suggest searching ebay (and ebay UK) for framesets or complete bikes & pull the trigger on the one you must have. I had a Windsor Hour as a refresher bike, then got the one I needed on ebay UK via the londonfgss ebay/cl thread.
