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)

a good cheap chrome frame with relaxed geometry?

I'm looking for a good frame that's cheap, with a relaxed geometry. I know the Kilo TT comes in chrome, but i don't like the toe overlap.

What else is out there? Is the Jury Chrome from BikeIsland relaxed?

Why does toe overlap matter? It only occurs to idiots that don't know how to steer or pedal correctly.

BikeIsland has a lugged chrome frame, it has a relaxed geometry and it's made by Maxway. Good stuff.

Then this forum must be filled with idiots......

Toe overlap occurs to many track frames but people who have them just learn to deal with it, it's no big deal.
