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)

Strip all those stupid gears off and repaint it, might make a nice conversion.

This has got to be a joke. If not then jump on that thing, that is if it is still there. That is an extremely good deal.

Colnago MasterX with quite a few nice parts...but I can't help but ask, is it really worth $3000? Understanding that all the components are top quality, it just makes me wonder what kind of rider would want that expensive of a bike unless its a strict track bike?

In my humble opinion, that bike is worth no where near 3 grand. Especially set up as a single speed. More like 1.5k

When it comes down to it, it's just a super sweet looking fixed gear. Yeah all of the parts are nice, but it's pretty unnecessary imo. As a function over aesthetics kind of person, I can't imagine spending more than $2k on what is essentially a commuter bike. Sure you could tour on it or whatever, but I could get a really nice road frame with some upgrades for that price.
