impressions? deal? My buddy's on the market for a cheap fixie for the winter...
it looks like a giant cadex 980. they are notorious for failure at the lugs due to UV damage.
other then that they are very comfortable and noodley.
it has a suicide hub... i think for 200 bucks your friend could probably find an actual fixed rear wheel and a decent steel frame.

It looks like my old Vitus...I know they built frames under several brands.
Mine rocked...but in retrospect it was a flexy frame.

I had a similar specialized allez, it was like riding a rubber band.

I'd spend an extra 100 bucks and get a KHS URBAN X for a winter beater. It's not a fixed gear... it's not a piece of $hit either.
