    If you can get better pictures of it, we would be able to help you out much more. Long distance and out of focus pictures show that its not missing its top tube, but that is about it.

    Unless you are a compitent mecahanic and have a large spare parts box, its probably not the cheapest or easiest way to get yourself rolling on a fixed gear. Not to say that its a bad idea, just that it will probably be filled with frustration and unexpected costs.

    I have nothing to do today, so I browsed around the SD craigslist and found an ad for a bike swap sunday at a shop. I have found lots of solid deals at those type of small swap meets.

    If this is your size seems like a pretty good deal for a complete bike, and might even some flipable parts(the barend shifters especially). I said seems, because with out seeing in person and going for a ride you cant be sure. http://sandiego.craigslist.org/csd/bik/2388402308.html

    wow thanks so much! I have a ss gear bike but the frame is too big and it's heavy and the fork is bent. So all I need is a frame set and a new fork... will the wheels be too big for the frame? it's a 25inch wheel and the new frame is an 49cm/ 19 inch.

    I was just messing with you and the fact that I reside in SD too. I wouldn't try to snatch that from you, as why would I get a starter fuji track, aka a kilo tt, when I have a bunch of other advanced track bikes around?

    Here's a better deal if you don't already have all the parts for it:

    The Fuji Track is worse than the Kilo TT, but it's not bad.

    The price is ok, but I think you can do better. You're aware that it doesn't come as a complete bike, right? The bottom bracket is really nice, but would only be of use to you if you had a crankset that fits it.

    True on a ideological stand point but technically...

    I would disagree. The fuji track has much better wheels, better headset and stem, better brakes(or brakes at all, depending on which Kilo you get), and much much much better quality control.

    Huh? I was under the impression that the Fuji Track was the same frame as the Motobecane Track and Windsor Hour (which are definitely not the same as the Kilo)... Or is this only true for the newer Fuji Tracks? Looking at the Bikepedia spec sheet for the 2007 model, the Fuji Track frame specs looks far from a Kilo TT.

    Are you talking about the CL bike or the stock 2007 bike? If stock, the wheels are not much better. The Kilo also comes with both front and rear Tektro brakes/levers and a Cane Creek headset. Fuji QC has been discredited in a recent thread entitled "What is a best bike here?".

    That's what it was; scratch what I said above then. I still can't help but think any BD bike is a BD bike...

    1986 Schwinn Peloton fixie, 56cm, lowered price! - $250 (NE)

    for sale is my 86 schwinn peloton, the peloton was second in line right behind the paramount and is a high quality Japanese built frame made with a blend of columbus sl and sp tubing. condition is excellent besides a few paint chips - bike is chrome underneath the paint. right now the bike is setup as a fixie. rides great as is or could be turned into a very nice road bike. bike has sugino cranks, shimano sealed bottom bracket, stem is super nice it's a 3t columbus, bontrager drop bars and seatpost, deep rims with formula fixed-fixed hub, surly cog with DA lockring, shimano 600 pedals and metal cages (hard to find).
    i can also include a shimano 7 speed front and rear derailleurs with downtube shifters, all it would take is some brakes and a different rear wheel and you'd have a nice road bike
    here is the catalog ad for it
    http://bikecatalogs.org/SCHWINN/1986...t/Peloton.html
    Looks like the same guy has a few Schwinns
