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 would you buy

so I've been looking at building up a new frame and getting rid of my old bent frame.
after lurking the threads for a while and looking at many track frames I've ended up with 2 choices.

mercier kilo tt or leader 722ts


what would you rather buy and why

Where can you even buy a 722TS frame (that isn't 49 or 61cm) anymore?
