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)

I'd grab it. I assume used; $475 is a pretty good deal w/o tax or shipping if your getting this locally. However some will say the components on the newer Capo's aren't as nice, but I figure you'll be upgrading anyways since that seems to be the trend here.

That's a great deal. All the components will hold up nicely under normal riding. I would get some kind of foot retention on the pedals though (toe clips/straps, power grips, clipless pedals) assuming it still has the platforms that come on it.
