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)

Cheap "pursuit" frame?

Hey I have tried looking around some, but kinda find any. Does any one know of a cheap steel frame that has pursuit geometry?

affinity lo pro @ 500 comes to mind, ive seen em on craigslist going for around 250 though.

there arent many actual 'pursuit geometry' frames, but i know what you mean = pursuit looks.

not sure what you mean by cheap, but if you want aluminum this is going to be close to your best bet

Keep an eye out on craigslist and velospace. People usually let them go fairly cheap when they realize it's not what they want it to be. I found my bike on velospace.

Get a job and you won't have to look for a cheap pursuit frame. You can just look for a pursuit frame.
