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)

Is this a good deal?

I'm looking to buy my first road/fixed gear bike. I've been looking around the threads seeing peoples opinions on certain types and I wanted to know if this would be a good deal or not or if i should haggle the price if possible.

Nice frame for a conversion but it's overpriced considering it's been converted into a SS/FG without its components.

$200 would be a good deal. $350 would be ok. $450 is not a good deal.

If the seller has *all* the original parts included with the auction and the frame is spotless, then it might be worth it.

Stuff like this should be posted in the 'Craigslist find' thread.
