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)

Not impressed with the lack of information about the frames.

I've stopped by their shop in Huntington Beach while I was out there and the stuff looks really nice in person.

God I hate horizontal scrolling websites.

Here's one that just popped up on Pedal Room, though it's been feature on some blog before... maybe Prolly or Cycleangelo.

I rode down to their shop in HB a couple of weeks ago. Great guys and their frames look fantastic in person. (I also bought a chainring from them because they gave me a pretty fantastic deal )

When did this brand first appear? I'd never heard of them before, but they seem pretty established (from the graphic presentation and amount of stock they've got).

Loving the CNC flush stem, even though it's totally impractical.

Quite awhile ago, I'm surprised you guys have never heard.

I've seen them. They live right next to me. They;ve been here for a while. I'm waiting to get a stem from them D: Its gunna be custom im look for -25 degree 90mm ti stem. When they get the mat im gunna get it from them.

Unless any one knows anything cheaper and nice 26 clamp is fine. 25.4 is better.

The fillet brazed and standard track frames looked great and I believe they were all Reynolds 853. The pursuit frame looked terribly uncomfortable- to each his own. TBH, most of their stuff looks a little tarck for my taste, but nice dudes and they do some fantastic welding.

"they get some people to do some fantastic welding for them"

standard is 520, kilo steel. brazed is tange prestige. nice, middle range chromos. 520 is basically 4130, nothing special. prestige is nice, but not 853 nice.

more than likely not worth their price, but i would totally dig that filet brazed frame were it offered at a slight discount.

I'm a sucker for nice brazing/torching and track ends with cutouts, but those prices are steep for what they are. I have a hard time justifying $600 for Reynolds 520 when I could just buy 1.67 Kilos.

didn't think brazing got hot enough to produce that much heat-affected area

cc700 you thinks thats pricey?

Right now im looking for a new frame,

This one is the cheapest so far. But low comes with a alpina fork(:

Meh, if your into that sort of thing.

But too much money for little added benefit.

Would rather a Nice lugged frame with hi quality steel or scandium or something..
