true true.
any ideas on a frameset? preferably like under 600$

samson, bridgestone, panasonic, fuck everything looks so sick but i dont even know where i would find one.


just start cruising la fixed. some times a vivalo or something cool comes up for around that price. for example there is this bridgestone for 450 but its a 53.5

i saw that , beautiful bike, sucks its too small.

@stunt i absolutely love my bike, but i feel it would simply just be fun to build something else up, just like a little project or something.

i'd fucking love to build up a cannondale track though, absolute dream bike &)&)

wtf. thats nuts. buying a custom fitted bike seems kinda weird though.

still, 500 dollars? i thought it costs like 1500 to order a frame from yamaguchi.



the guy who owns this bike spent like 3k on it or something. pretty ridiculous for an ugly bike ?)

In the real world, people sell stuff for a lot less than what they paid.

But on the internets, people sell for way more than they paid.

now thats just crazy speak (sarcasm).

custom bikes always go for cheap. mostly b/c unless you have a twin that bike isn't going to be the right size for anyone else...

As long as it isn't a conversion thats a pretty good deal. And yeah, I like it. I get compliments on it all the time. The geometry is a bit stiff for street riding but its an aluminum bike so thats to be expected.

There isn't a single reason to have a heavy frame. Aluminum versus steel is totally different though.
