I think this might be the frame I need for a fixie. Chrome fork. Nice sparkle green paint too.

Thoughts?

Cheers!

I'm such a geek. Love that chrome fork.

I've also seen some tasty fixie-worthy frames at sjscycles.com. Click on "road frames". Can you say...cheap!

or not, but some of the folks over there have discussed this frame. As I recall, someone had ridden the bike shown in the photo. You might be able to get some more information from the posts there.

I think it would be a waste to strip all that lovely touring gear, the bike is just lovely the way it is !.

But should you go ahead with the fixed gear concept, I'd be glad to purchase the racks.

Oh, I certainly agree...Ahimsa

Bear in mind thought that the particular build up on the website is just one of many optional build kits they offer for that frame. I will be purchasing frame and fork alone and suiting her up meself.

Cheers!

I wonder who makes the frame. The design is obviously inspired by the French Randonneur designs. Could it be Mariposa? Maybe Marioni?
