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)

Nitto b123's are expensive on ebay.

I might as well buy new. I never see a good deal on either used b123 or b125's. If up for auction by the time bidding ends there are at least in the $50 range and that doesn't include shipping.

I got both my b123s and my nitto bullhorns by surfing craigslists across the country. Both were in great shape and cost me somewhat less than any ebay deal I could find.

Craigslist is the best. I got my 123AAs which are painted white with sparkle on craigslist for 45.

i love that sparkle paint.

i'm going to paint my next frame white sparkle.

and b123's are indeed expensive. especially for steel bars.

my colnago drops were 50 used, but they're vintage aluminum colnago pista drops and they're lighter than b123aa's.

my deda pista drops were 15 used and i am thinking of selling my soma456 because i don't think i'll ever use them again with all the aluminum goodness.

I'm debating on selling my B123s. The drop is a bit ridiculous for road riding. Send me a PM, and we'll discuss, if you'd like.
