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)

anyone...?

anyone know of a good place online to find used track frames...other than ebay. my problem is that hardly any of the bikes that are on there, that i can afford, are not made for someone my height. i need a standover of 34 in. i am about to give in and purchase a new one, and upgrade it over time...

answering a question about e-bay alternatives with "it's on ebay" is not very helpful...
i've had the same question myself- the only place that i've found outside of your local craigslist is the fgg 'for sale' section, http://www.fixedgeargallery.com/swapmeet/index.htm
unfortunately, this resource is very rarely used....
