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)

If I remember correctly visp frames were distributed through ebay for relatively dirt cheap..... . Although I've heard they are reliable..... perhaps even more than leader....

I was being sarcastic. Visp frames might be good frames but they are basically an eBay brand that goes for something like $130 and the other parts I don't see adding up to $700 but i could be wrong.

What do you mean by "reliable"? What a meaningless post.
