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)

Look under the bottom bracket and see if there's a serial number. That would help the most. Rear dropouts seem decent quality, but that doesn't necessarily mean a notable brand always.

It's a Visp, aka 'PCO Custom'.

That is fantastic.

Consider replacing the water bottle with something a little more aero, something like all the racers are using. Like this:

Apparently the Comma key is the only punctuation with which you are familiar. It wouldn't kill you to use the shift keys either.




lol



EDIT:

Oh wait. I see that you know how to use exclamation points...because you used SEVEN of them in your thread title.

No, but given you type as well as a mentally disabled person from the country where the frame was made, an english class may be necessary to actually understand you.

All bull**** aside what would you guys value the frame and the fork alone? They are both in excellent shape, the fork is carbon fiber

Take the weight of the frame and multiply it by the market rate for scrap aluminum.

You made a very bad decision. It's worth probably half of the worth of your fuji that you gave for it.

Now cut the price in half because it's used.

You can buy a brand new visp frameset for less than $200. It's not like a newest 3.0 frame is a gem either, so the trade was just about right. If you were looking to cash out on this frameset, you could maybe get $100 if you were patient. (and put cinelli stickers on it)
