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)

I wish I had 3K for this

this would be my holy grail of frames, probably a size to big for me but such a beautiful frame to look at.

Yamaguchi Zero Track Frame 56cm

I thought that was a time trial frame. I sure wouldn't want to to have to sprint on that.


For 3k I would take his framebuilding class and build what ever frame I want.
