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)

This guy has been selling these Webco 10 speeds for $250 each. They were low end Japanese imports from the 70s. I guess he's having trouble moving them for that price - and thought maybe this was a good idea? (??) lol

You're up earlier than me, otherwise that would have been my exact comment. The joke's on us though, as someone will probably give him $500 for it.

pretty sure this bike has been posted at least 2-3 times before, with swept back bars in place. "It won't last long!".

But guys "yellow vuelta track wheels on black hub with black spokes and a flip flop hub"
Lacing two wheels to one hub and then attaching another hub has got to take some serious skill
