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)

true. didn't BF decide unanimously that the frame on bikeisland was a maxway? the chrome one at least. it's unnamed in the listing... it is def a bit cheaper than the one on velo mine.

but the again, affinity did confirm that a new shipment of lo pros will be in sometime in june. maybe 2nd week the guy said... i'm gonna sit tight for a bit and see what happens

Both the VeloMine and Bike Island nickel frames are MaxWay. The Bike Island frame has cable guides, the VeloMine one does not.
