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)

Motobecane on BikesDirect.com

Hey,
I was wondering what you guys thought of this Motobecane bike they have for sale at http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/.../messenger.htm

I have been riding a single speed Raleigh conversion for a while now and would like to build up my first track. If I get the Motobecane I will use the frame and put my own components on it but I want the complete for the spare parts.

I'm not looking for a top of the line bike but I don't want crap either. I've been riding fixed for about two years and I mainly ride in downtown Philadelphia. Any advice/opinions.

Thanks!
