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)

After market frame

Hey guys, now i've searched google, this forum, other forums as well. I am finnally going through and building myself a fixie. Gonna spend some were in the range of 600-700 . (i useto paintball, i got rid of my gear, now that i'm in school i dont have time to go out to the field)

I looking to spend some where in the range of 100-240 for a frame. Maybe more if its really worth it. Now i see find all these frames online and on ebay. The ones on ebay claiming they are the same as other brands, while the online stores claiming they have the best gear. Yea, i know that i could go with a old frame, probably save money and all. But i want to do it right the first time around, i want to build myself an aswome bike the first time around.

IS there a frame you guys recomend or maybe a website out there that rates frames that are currently on the market. I want something light and strong.

Thank you gentlemen in advance for the great answers i am sure you will have
