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)

The Price is Right? (I don't think so)

Seems a little steep for what it is. I can't tell what other components are on it. What are your price checks?

Seems quite pricey to me. He sure doesn't offer much info about the bike. I would offer him $300 and see what happens from there.

its hard dealing on something like this with someone who thinks so much of their bike and clearly wants more than its worth. He doesn't list components cause he may not know what they are or they're really cheap that if he were to list them he couldn't place the price at $700 FIRM!

Fetish SS frames have sold on eBay for around $109.99. Fetish makes good frames, though.
Bike seems wayyyy over-priced to me.

But..... is that US dollars or Canadian dollars?
