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)

Track Frameset Suggestions

Hey Guys,

A customer of ours reached out to us for a suggestion on an affordable frameset for a build he's working on and I thought I would reach out here. He wants a traditional track frame geometry and was looking at All City Big Block but he was looking for something a little cheaper. Any suggestions? I know I'm not giving you much to work with but I'd be interested to hear what you're riding/recommending.

Thanks!

I am fairly sure the Rush frame w/o fork costs the more than a Big Block frameset.

Pake is by far the best bang for the buck.
