|Someone on Ebay is selling 'Falcon' frames with Reynolds 531 tubing, lugs and horiz dropouts. It's an older frame (1980's) and has never been built up before. I was thinking of buying one for a fixed gear.
Anyone have any experience with these frames? I've never heard of them before, but it looks like a decent frame for a city bike...

|They're going for about $100-$200. Almost too good to be true for a high quality reynolds steel frame, but I'll take what I can get =).
Seems like the guy has a few in stock and is selling a couple a week. Grey and Blue, the blue is going a bit higher than the grey (nicer look). Thanks for the advice, I may try to pick one up soon...

|My first real road bike was a blue Falcon 105. Nice steel 531 frame. Seems like it had a relatively long wheelbase and slack angles. It was real stable and comfortable.|

|Had a Falcon in the mid 1970s. 531, sewups, shallow angles. Very light, and not as stiff as bikes today. But, a very good bike.|| |
