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)

2009 Jamis Sputniks for $570 shipped!

http://www.bicyclebananasstore.com/2...09_Sputnik.htm

These have the reynolds 631 frame and carbon fork.

Really good deal, IMO. Plus they offer good customer service and do a pro build and inspection before shipping...

There is a stickied great deal / sale thread; no need to start a new thread. Also, no need to be a jerk, just post the facts.

Edit: I see you posted in the deal / sale thread w/o the obnoxious commentary.

I vote /thread.

calm down guys. It's a good deal and from a reputable dealer who actually takes the time to inspect and build the bikes before shipping. So not only is it a better bike than anything you can find on BD at that price range, but it also has customer service to back it.

Only reason its gone is because it's got toshi's on it, my other bike is clipless :/

We don't need to get into a bash bd thread. That's a good deal, period. No need to embelish. This is just trolling.

I'm really not trolling. I edited my OP. I think it's a no brainer that at that price it's better than anything you could find on BD at the same price point.

Is that how it came across to you?

I'll be sure to wear my little kiddy gloves when talking to you next time.

I've been eyeing those as well. 2009 stock means they are 631 + the carbon fork.

2010: 631 no carbon fork.
2011: 520 no carbon fork.

Jamis has slowly ruined the sputnik.

Not sure if I wanna spring for it yet, as they have been sitting there at that price for a while.

What I was told, is that Jamis made a butt load of these 2009 sputniks and that they have a HUGE overstock. This company orders them directly from Jamis as orders come in. So it's not like they are sitting on the floor or in the back of these stores. Some guy is doing the same thing on ebay only he's charging $799 plus shipping. Granted he's accepting best offer but he's not budging much on that price.

It's a great deal an older but better model, imo. The new sputniks don't even compare.

I've had no issues with my BD bike and their customer service is amazing.

How on earth is it cheaper? Your bike on BD cost at least $795 shipped. The sputnik is $570 shipped. Last time I checked 795-570 is 225. The sputnik has a better frame as well.

I might end up buying on if a few ebay auctions don't go the way I want 'em to. The Jamis tempts because of the better tubing and better geometry than my iro, BUT

it doesn't look at sexy as my bike.

I'd be proud to own either bike.
