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)

I think someone here had the same two track bikes once (722 townie, Mash) as me, after me, balls were not busted!

There's what, 8-10ish established steel frames under $800? It happens

I'll come off as super defensive, but I knew the accusation was coming, so I'll at least explain myself!

aww that's not fair. those are definitely two of the better colors of both of those frames. don't forget I had a black 725 too, which I bought from you.

+I didn't get to choose the color of how great this BK deal was.

Still do, and it will most likely be a Dodici (Leggero). I have a bad habit of jumping on a deal (I got my 722s during the new years eve sale). I did really like the BK (though wish I was smaller for a purple Gojirra), but I wouldn't had paid full cost for one. I've been sitting with all the parts for a bike for a while, waiting to put them on my stanridge, the BK popped up for a good deal and I jumped on it to hold me over. I'll eventually either get rid of it or the big block after I decide which I like more to fund mentioned custom.

last two years I've gone through a big block, 722 (x2), 725, Mash and a Rush I think scrod has done 722, 725, dodici, eai, madison (bit longer), kagero. pretty easy to own the same combo. it's basically a who's who of moderately priced bike frames, with the exception of surly, owning the same combo with bike a.d.d. guys like us is easy.

Either way he lives in MA, so I dgaf. pink dodici inc!

Now lets shift gears and talk about those two identical green 722s with gumwalls!

Just busting your balls, man.

It's just funny how we never even saw a blue BK on this forum until I got mine and then suddenly, Naterod and UFC Eric had/have them and now you're getting one.

yeah I know but I was very aware I was buying my third twinsy with you so I had to spill it out anyway, ha.

and it's funny, I barely saw BK's, and since RG started carrying them I see a lot more EAI frames in general

True. A few years ago EAI frames were everywhere but it seems like people forgot about them until we started selling them.

I really, really like mine.

I just put a 57cm white soma rush on CL for 450. Does that sound like a reasonable asking price?
Im hoping to get 400 out of this deal.

Complete? If it's just frame, fork and a few parts maybe, but if it's complete with decent components, that's a deal.

That thing is gonna sell. Field some offers, you might end up raising the price I would think.

If it was my size and in my area, I would consider it. I think I remember reading good reviews about the WTB Vigo. It came up on chainlove like last year and I almost got one.

This seems pretty sweet if you ride a 53

http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/m...400558412.html

Basically 3 Frames and enough components to build 3 bikes for $1000.

I'm thinking of picking this up just for the wheelset and some other parts and selling off the frameset and crankset seperately. All for 770 CAD... Seems like a screaming deal to me
