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)

Thinking about a new frame, any thoughts?

I have heard great things about the Soma Rush, but the Leader v3 has also caught my eye. Wont really be tricking, just riding around town and commuting to work. I'm lookin to keep the frame below 500, and am wanting a slight upgrade from my crappy Windsor frame. Opinions guys?

I love the Wabi's, my only concern is the lack of colors

There is enough of your budget to get it powdercoated or see what Wabi could do for you. They are looking at doing a raw frame.

Yeah I emailed them asking about powedercoating because its near impossible to get anything powdercoated here in Utah. I spend a good month trying to get in touch with various powdercoating companies, but didn't have much luck.

****tier than a rattlecan job? Maybe downtown, but in the sugar house area roads are pretty gnarly.
