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)

Best Place to buy a Schwinn Madison 2009?

Where are all these deals I heard about. I can't find one for less than $525, and performancebike stopped carrying them.

There are several sellers on Ebay selling new ones... How does $440 sound, shipped?

I would try this guy... he seems to have them listed regularly.

Shop around...I got my 2008 Madison from my local Performance Bike shop in Sacramento for about $380. after discounts. Their Howe Ave. store still had 3 of them as of Monday. With their 10% off sale on top of their already discounted price, you should get right at the $400. mark. Love mine.

Go to your local Schwinn dealer, explain that you'd like to buy from him and see what he can do. Even if it is a few dollars more many of these guys are hurting right now and need our support.
