Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Opinions on unknown manufacturer/bike recommendation

Hi all, I'm a noob/not super knowledgeable and I'm looking for a somewhat affordable fixed gear after my schwinn madison that I had for 7 years got stolen over the weekend. I stumbled upon this guy selling his own brand of bikes on craigslist and am wondering if anyone can tell me (based on the limited specs) if its worth the money ($340).

I mostly just can't find any reviews anywhere and I think he must've just launched the brand in the past year or so, theyre called BK Duma Bicycles. Here's the website www. bkduma . com /shop/arj12u3pacurznlirjujsi54keln9r (sorry i guess im not supposed to post urls with less than ten posts so I broke it up)

Apparently he charges anywhere from $400-440 in a store, and these are his 2016 models, so I'm just wondering if anyone thinks this is a reasonable buy for $340. Thanks!

limited specs:
Tires 700c 28c

Headset: 1 1/8'' thread-less Necco

Handlebar: 25.4 cm Forged Alloy

Stem: 25.4 cm Forged Alloy

Grip: High Quality PVC

Brake Caliper: Front and rare Promax

Crank: Alloy 48T

Crank Arm: Alloy

Spoke: Steel

Rim: Alloy 40MM

Chain KMC Z410

Crap frame, crap components. If you live in NYC, continue to search Craigslist.

the component list is too vague. and what is listed (neco headset, promax brakes) is bottom barrel.

Throw in some High Quality (Or Whatever) PVC bars, and maybe we can talk.
