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)

Goldsprint 13 frame

Looks an awful lot like a certain other frame whose name contains the word Sprint, huh?



http://shop.goldsprint.de/product_in...rahmenset.html

I wonder if they'll give you actual information about it if you e-mail them...

It's literally identical to a Superb Sprint except for the headtube size (and that ugly crabon fork).

I just thought it was funny because the dude from Superb was hell-bent on explaining how they had it specially made for them and wouldn't give any details about where it was made.

Meh... once you've ridden the real thing everything else is just a compromise.


~~~~~On another note; would anyone know the tubing diameters of the sprint & the goldsprint? More specifically the downtube.

So you can get into a super aero tuck?

Id much rather have this than the Superb bull****, if Cannondale was smart they'd release a copy of what once was as a small run of frames for a redicilous price

At least Superb's fork looks okay on their bike, the blades on the fork they're using for this thing are the size of the downtube, jesus.

but yeah. I opened the thread and thought I was looking at a new Sprint frame, until I read on.

Wow with flat black, that would look much better with a more shaped headtube.

All around as is, I say meh.
