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)

Anyone heard of YHC?

It's a frame I found on eBay. I was wondering if anyone knew anything about it or had purchased one. It's pretty flashy but it looks like it has solid dropouts and the geo looks pretty fun. Just wondering. LMK if you think it might be a good deal. I've only had my conversion frame for about a month and have decided I want a "real" track frame that isn't half bad looking.

I wouldn't get it, it does not provide a geometry chart as to how each size is measured.

Also, ridiculously long seat post?tube? It also uses a very odd sized seatpost.

The person also have leggings and tights and various bike parts for sale, too weird.

Didn't look at his other listings the tights are a little weird.....I also kind of like the other frame he sells the so called trick frame haha. I just like that its not the normal geo of most fixed gear frames. Ugh I hate having so little money that I have to gamble with shady eBay sellers that sell bike parts and tights.

Just "FIXIE TRACK MESSENGER CRANKSET"

So, rather obviously... not Sugino.



He's definitely claiming the SAG bags are legitimate, though, which is ballsy since they're obviously knock-offs.

Read the eBay feedback, not good >>> http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAP...edbackAsSeller

Seller misrepresents items. Seller is in Australia, which means high shipping costs to the USA. Seller has 2 negative and 3 neutral feedbacks out of 36 in last month. All of this tells me to stay away!

Yeah don't think I'm going to, maybe I'll check back in a year and see whats up. What really pushed me away was only one frame was sold in the past six months and who knows if it was a friend just making it seem legitimate.

Don't think it's a VISP, looks different to me, but made of 6061T6 tubing, probably straight gauge and pretty heavy. The welds look worse than on my VISP, and I certainly wouldn't pay over $100 for it. I paid $51 for the VISP, which included a headset, so it was a good deal for me. Also, the VISP is available in 6 sizes, whereas this one is only available in 3 sizes.

Yeah I've been looking at that just haven't pulled the trigger yet. If I got one of those frames it would be the matte black one and I'd just have to murder it out with some carbon deep section wheels. Unfortunately I don't have the funds for that now so I don't know.

It's my opinion that the Visp framesets are probably the best looking "el-cheapo no-name aluminum track framesets" out there.

I like that "brakeless" is the buzzword on the picture.
