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)

This is insanity.

And for the record, no I am NOT the seller. This is the most ridiculous asking price I have ever seen for a bike so far.

Gotta be a mistake. This certainly beats the white BK that's been floating on ebay though

the guy sold it already, outside of ebay, so put the asking price really high so no one would bid on it.

Are you sure that isn't Sparta? Or even better a Sparton frame (lol). You would think that at 10,000 he would at least give you free shipping talk about a rip off geez

Looking at how he put that bike together, I don't think he's intelligent enough to know how to do that.
