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)

What is the most expensive stock fixed gear?

Just thought of this and now I'm curious.

Probably a Dolan DF3 complete with Mavic IO + Comete + Sugino Zen + Sugino 75 + 3t Scatto bars. They sell it at their site for something like 4500

slap some diamonds and precious gems on a walmart bike and it's still going to worth more than a full on performance setup

Haha thanks guys, but I was more thinking "what is the most expensive mass produced fixed gear?" Ok, maybe top five since now I'm REALLY curious after seeing that Dolan. Thanks for the responses.

Race bike or Street Fixed Gear?

Most high-end track racing bikes come as frame only. For example, the LOOK 496 is $12,000 for just the frame/fork.

Here is a $4,800 complete bike.

Estimated MSRP came from this article: http://www.bikeradar.com/road/news/a...ke-2012-35105/

You mean like my old bike?



1) That is a custom build, so that doesn't count.

2) The DF3 Frame is now like $1,500. Relatively cheap on the world-class level.

3) Sugino cranks are relatively cheap. Go for the SRM power meter. SRM Cranks are $3,300/set.

I commented on that setup because it's possible to configure it so at their site: http://www.dolan-bikes.com/track-bik...product_id=245
