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)

currently the frame with the seller but ive asked him to reserve for me 1st.The price is around $RM 500/ 90 pounds.What is the main difference between older frame of bob jackson and the latest besides the Paul track drop out?

tubing, probably; 531 vs 631.
geometry is most likely the same.
decals may be different.
paul drop outs are a custom option, not standard.
