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)

Is this a legit/good deal?

I know brand new Mercier Kilo TT's cost $360.

http://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/bik/1940455456.html

This seems a little too good to be true, deep Vs, carbon fork, sugino cranks...

Good deal. Not too good to be true though.

What a liar....those aren't Sugino cranks...just stock cranks painted orange.
Looks like it has loose ball hubs but it has carbon forks...unless you really want the orange, then I don't really think it's a super good deal.

It looks like the rear hub is a loose ball Formula with the dome-shaped shield.
