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)

Im just saying what your definition of "classic"? A little more info would be useful for us. Some people think 1980's would be a classic. Personally, I think it would be a 1960's-1970's bike to be a classic. Everything else is just in limbo.

i would love an njs bike. but i dont have the cash for that. and i dont really want the kilo. i just wanted to know so i could have a good chance of just searching it on google, and finding a website that i could buy a nice bike from.

I don't think $500 for a 4130 chromoly steel frame is worth it.

That's not "old style track" at all. Even the kilo has a lugged fork.
I suggest the SE Premium brew frameset. 250 bikeisland, shipping included, frame/fork/headset. Lugged frame and fork, very nice looking dropouts too.

I agree with the other guy, NJS is what you are looking for - but the prices are absurd for the hipsters looking for NJS everything, no matter what the price, even though they arent even keirin racers.

Yes it is mine. Thanks for the complement. I have a set of custom laminated wood handlebars on it right now. Just need this damn snow to go away.
