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)

Was thinking of buying one like this and slowly building up.
Thought it shouldn't be too hard to find them since I live in Japan, but the size (~56) is not very common here.

Those are the ones I was thinking of getting.
Why do you need to get another frame?

Yahoo Auction in Japan is the best place to get them I think. Cheaper deals than at NJS Export, but you have to keep looking and bid, and it's all in Japanese, don't know if that's ok or not.

there are tons of 56cm frames in Japan.

I used to use the diacompe front and rear brake kit and they work fine. No flex and are rubber coated so they don't rust/kill your paint.

I checked NJS expors and Dreamworks Cycle in Shibuya and Yahoo auction, but nothing in my size.

There is a guy who sells frames and parts out of Aichi, he goes by 8pilgim8. And Rene that owns gira gira/njs supermarket(osaka) knows the guys who own Vivalo (kobe).

you could also goto the velodromes in your area and ask anyone if they have an old frame they arent using. Talk to baby puke on the forums. I think he is in the tokyo area.

Nope, thats his ebay handle.
