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)

fuji classic track/feather frameset

So I'm pretty much in love with the Fuji Classic Track's frame which i believe is the same frame used on the Fuji Feather and I'm wondering if anyone knows if its possible/where to buy JUST the frame and fork. I don't want to buy the whole bike for the frame. Any leads? Google isn't helping me out much.

The shop where I work is a Fuji dealer and sometimes there are framesets available to retailers but as of right now, zilch.

I don't know so much that it wouldn't be a pricey item as just the frame anyway. citygrounds.com is moving the 2010 Classics for $ 459.99, that's $ 90 off MSRP and the 2010 Feathers for $ 499.99 and that's $ 150 off MSRP w/ free S&H.

Is there any reason that you're limiting yourself to one bicycle? Actually, the Windsor Hour (and I think the Motobecane Track too) are basically carbon copies of the Fuji Track frame if you compare them...

citygrounds has some Classic Track & Feather up to 58 cm frame sizes, you need bigger ? If not, color selection might be the only other issue ?

Try eBay if you don't mind a used deal. I found a 60cm Classic Track frame on there a while back. A lot of people are trying to get rid of their old frames.

@JDMFanatic, not really, didn't know those were similar geometry. thanks for the tip

@fuji86, i do indeed need bigger, i'm 6'3

@seau grateu, i totally don't mind a used deal at all. i did check ebay once but didn't see much, i suppose i could give it a more thorough look.

basically im 6'3 and looking for a simplistic frame that looks something like the fuji track to replace my bent '81 schwinn sports tourer
