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)

An email form Maxway

I was wondering where I could get there frames online, but you can only get Maxway frames from brands . However you all may be interested in some info I got from them; a list of what brands use Maxway frames.

"You can buy Maxway frame from QBP ( Surly , Salsa , Civia , All City ) , Jamis , IRO , Mission , Affinity ..... , Maxway didn't sell on line or have distributer at all world , sorry!"

Just in case IcySmooth wasn't aware.

Actually, as much I do dig my Maxway, I may be selling it soon.

Serious question, do you have photographic memory? It's weird, because you posted your responce with quote in 2 minutes. It's almost like you had the quote ready for when someone asked the question.

I remember things, like a lot of things.

It was perfect timing, I refresh the page and saw your post then went over to the other thread to quote Scrod and pasted it here.

sgvbicycles is a legit website. I can't say for sure that it's really a maxway, but they will ship whatever it is you buy to you. It's run by this guy with a garage full of bike parts. My friend bought a complete bike from them and it's had no problems.

Hey, is the universally adored Fuji Obey a Maxway frame, or just Maxway track ends? Some say it's an SE PB w/o cablestops, some say it's a lugged Fuji Track Classic...who knows...

It's a Maxway frame...exact in every way to the Premium Brew and the Bike Island nickel-plated frameset except the Obey has no cable stops.

Only problem with SGV is that he spams his posting over craigslist to the point of really becoming a problem, misleading titles, spamming keywords, literally dozens of the same post every day.
