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)

Holy **** chicago! Those things are expensive. South Carolina is the place to be for cheap bikes. I got a raleigh record for 20 bucks. Couldn't sell it for 140 so i traded it for a Bianchi Sport SX. The bad part is that if i ride out of my drive way i get run over.

No wonder why this bike has been on CL for the past few months.
Just cause your in PDX doesnt mean you can jack up prices!!
Check out this scammer!
A VISP frame track bike for 1200. Its certainly NOT a Fuji Track Pro.

http://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/bik/2134627512.html
This bike is worth about 300 bucks if not less.

Actually, I don't think it's a Visp. Don't Visp frames use a separate seat post clamp?



Where does it say something about it being a Fuji?

edit: Nevermind. I just found quite a few pics of Visp frames via Google that show integrated clamps.

Very similar to this??

http://www.flickr.com/photos/klasols...n/photostream/

Anyways if your selling a bike for $1200 you should tell us what type of frame it is!
No I dont think its worth $1200
Which is why its been on C.L. for a few months.

Why do I seem to always come across these ridiculously expensive 80's conversions yet they look soo tempting to bomb around on in the snow?

Don't bring that lumbering ****ing thing anywhere near me.
