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)

EBAY Frameset / Seamus Murphy Track

Hey guys just picked up this frameset on Ebay. Didn't see anything about it while searching so thought i would let you guys know about it. It is a Seamus Murphy Track Frame that i got off of ebay for $144 shipped. It came with BB installed, and a headset. It took maybe 3-4 business days to arrive and i was pleasantly surprised by how well it was packaged (big box, mega-taped, and bubble wrap everywhere!) The seller was top notch, and saw the transaction through thoroughly.
It comes in a variety of different colors, but the stock "orange" is the cheapest. Doesn't really matter as i have plans to paint it Audi nogaro blue. Just thought i would let you guys know of other options besides the kilo tt, etc. I like the look of it more than the kilo, but i believe the kilo is a little stronger tubing, and many prefer its style. To each their own, anyways this is just a mock up, the bike wont look anything like this really, just wanted to show off the frameset. Thanks guys!

He has different sales throughout the year. Different sizes are different prices based on popularity, availability also. Just wait for them to go on sale, and snatch one up!

For the price you paid, seems like it's worth a try, but for the prices I'm seeing for $250-$350 (depending on color/size) not so much.
