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 frame suggestions <$600

In search of a frame with a $600 budget.

I am considering an EAI Bareknuckle or a Bob Jackson.


Looking for more suggestions/options.



...I meant to say <$600

you didn't need to search for these, just scroll down the first page. Search is at the top.

Try the terms: soma, pista, IRO, johnny cycles, jamis, langster, specialized, raleigh, rivendell, chuck's, business cycle, kogswell, american cyclery...for a start

I have checked all those out. But thanks for the helpful reply.


I've seen reviews Soma vs. Surly,


I guess you can say Bareknuckle vs. Bob Jackson (or suggestions to other frames within the price range or cheaper (= )

Lugged would be nice.

You can get a Mark V frame for $225 with the sale. I know you are looking for lugged, but $225 is a damn good price for the Mark V

You don't even have to search the forums...you'd get all the answers you needed if you just searched google.

I had the same questions last month...I went with the Bare Knuckle. I actually wanted a lugged steel italian whatever I decided that the Bk was more to my liking for street and speedway racing. So far no complaints...did my first ever no hands track stand yesterday. The frame is tight and stiff, still dialing out the fitment. Stronger than snot!

I think you already had two of the best choices in mind. I vote for the Bob Jackson.

Or the Bare Knuckle!

They're both hot in their own way. hell I'd take either in that price range. Slight edge to the Jackson. I guess.

Helpful aint I?

If I can get your SR20 for the price of an IRO, I'll take it!



I think I'm gonna go with an ivory Bob Jackson. Laced up with some green deep v's.
