    can this frame make a good fixie? Leader LD-720TT frame

    I see it has the bad drop out's ...or non dropouts but it looks like a nice frame. is there a way for this to be fixied or would it not be worth it?

    But the question was will it make a good fixie, which the answer is no. If the question was "should I buy this" the answer would be yes.

    random post, i looked at airwalk fixed blog in awhile ( i always wanted a mini fixed gear), and found out they have bunch of new models , and the frames are cheap as hell.



    $270 for framset.



    $200 for framset.

    I definitely am interested in the Vintage 700 because I love pursuit geo, and i guess i could always swap out that ugly fork with some nice carbon ones.




    cheap frames yay. whaddaya guys think?

    geo is whack, squeegee, especially on the black one. st angle appears to be near 90 and the head tube is like 71. and its only made in 53? what!?!

    vintage 700 has the same republic bikes droppouts. looks like an affinity lo pro, though, might be worth the 200.

    Still, not bad if you live in Asia/local. Shipping to US is pretty ridiculous, but seems like a cheap alternative if you want a pursuit geo bike.

    !

    What would you guys get... kilo frame or this frame.

    I've seen many asian fixed gear blog pictures with people riding in favor bikes so I am going to presume they are not horrible... hmmmmmm

    we all know you have a kilo pro.

    The pursuit-ish one looks decent though.

    To the OP, that frame could be nice for a budget build if you...
    find a decent fork for a good deal
    run a road bike rear hub with a ss conversion
    and a chain tensioner.

    You've been fooled by the curvy seat tube, the angles are seat tube: 74.5 headtube: 73.

    I actually like it a lot, not sure I'd get black though.

    Pretty ridiculous that they only come in 53 though.

    if that is the price with shipping included for the framesets, i kinda dig them ;p
    i mean, could be fun for a cheapo street tarck build. not that im going to be getting either.
