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)

Nickel Plated frame Bikeisland.com

I was just looking around and came across this frame, and at first I just assumed it was a Kilo TT 'cause bikeisland just says Nickel Plated Lugged Frame. No manufacture name or model. The geometry also doesn't match up to the TT so now I'm just curious. Has anyone bought this frame? Know anything about it? Just curious.

Yup, Maxway. Same frame as the SE Premium Brew and Fuji Obey.

I had a Premium Brew and loved the hell out of it. Maxway is awesome.

my friend doug built this frame up as a wedding gift to himself. it looks REALLY nice and clean. Scrod's got all the details right and i can confirm cuz i've seen the maxway written in on the track ends in person.

oh thanks, I was just about to ask to see a complete. reading minds. That, however, is an attractive bike and is pushing my slightly closer to purchasing the frame, hahaha.

You know, a certain independent anti-boutique bike shop that base out of Beverly, MA, could contact Maxway to hook up a deal.

Is there an ETA? I missed out on the group bay from bikeisland some time ago. I'll be watching for updates!

EDIT: You know what, it doesn't matter. I'll wait.

Squirrelli is obviously an Italian name. The properly pronunciation is squi-rel-li.

I've seen some people strip the paint off a Schwinn Madison for the chrome look... I've been quite tempted to do it myself.
