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)

right, ofcourse but what is a good price where the buyer should not feel "taken" but rather that they got a bit of a bargain.

what? i don't get it.
new steamrollers are 665$ and i'm assuming that one is used and even though it has some upgrades, the used bike market sucks right now(at least in my 'hood it does).
now that i think about it, offer him $350
