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)

Building from scratch

Hi,
I'm 13 and new to cycling. I have been racing on the road from 2 months now, and am wanting to try something new. I want to build a nice, cheap track bike. I want a cheap modern frame. My frame size is 54cm. Or if there is a cheap bike between $0-$400.
Thanks,
Harrison

two whole months? Dang you must be the fastest biker out there.

Anyway, I can tell by your post that you are looking for some top quality products. So... go to Urbanoutfiters and get one of those bikes. I think they might even have the color scheme you're looking for.
