" You can PM me an offer if you'd like. Here's the bike, a mid 80s Univega Gran Premio. Which at the time was their top road bike (or so I've read). All the components are original Suntour Cyclone.  "

"Oh, I think I may have heard about that place. They sell used bikes and eat a lot of pizza there, right? "

"Not to disagree, but I've had a Surly Cross-Check for years, which has horizontal drop-outs (similar to the vintage options discussed above), and I've never had a problem with chain tension when running it wither fixed or free.  Maybe…"

"Adam, I have a 57cm Bianchi Pista (chrome from 2006, decals intact, low miles and stored for the last couple of years). I'd be willing to let it go for the right price as I rarely hit up the velodrome these days. PM to discuss price etc. Also,…"

"Not really designed for being ridden w/o some sort of chain tensioner (ie a deraileur). The road dropouts don't offer a lot of wiggle room where as the track-style horizontal dropout gives your a huge amount of flexibility.  "

"Love old geared bikes converted. Fuji's, Raleighs, Schwinn LeTours. Cheap as heck and they look great. I have an old Bridgestone (Kabuki) that I love."
