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)

Anybody know? I emailed Tony but got nothing. I hope I didn't miss the bus on picking one of these up...

That model was put on hiatus. It was never really a huge seller compared to the others and was more expensive to produce.

It's been put on the back burner to give the Model 19 Singlespeed 29'er a chance to shine.

It's a shame, really, about the Rob Roy, because it did serve a niche. Granted, it was a small niche, SS Cyclocrossers and/or SS Tourers.

Surly doesn't really have anything like it, unfortunately.

He gave away all the Rob Roys for $7.
But that probably means some people now have one more Rob Roy frame than they actually need, so you might be able to get an almost new one cheaply depending on your size.
