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)

Chill Bikes

Has anyone heard of Chill Bikes? Looks like they come from England. These don't look to be high end bikes, but there seem to be some good deals on Amazon. Anyone have any experience with these? Thanks

They look pretty meh, but the cordless brakes are a neat innovation.

I would honestly pass, I doubt anyone on here has one but I guess we shall see. It's like a BMX stem, FGFS fork FGFS foot straps, bike looks funky and cheap.

My internet isn't working well so I didn't get to read the specifications. Like the look of the frame. Might consider stronger or wider or otherwise different handlebars.

I didn't get past the intro with the spinning wheels and the Queen walking her dog.

Nothing against the Queen but I'm looking at the website waiting for something to happen and the Queen walks off stage and the cartoon bike is just sitting there and I'm like, "OK... And...?"

I just checked back after typing this and the cartoon bike is still sitting there and I still don't know anything about the actual company or what they have to offer.

Maybe I'll click on it later.

It took me a few minutes before I realized that you have to click the bicycle to continue.

Unfortunately I went a little further and the site tried to infect my computer with viruses. It took a few minutes to be able to escape and get that crap from freezing my machine. HASSLE!

I was looking at a model on Amazon that was way worse than the bikes on the actual website. I'd still pass for $589 they don't even give solid specs, and the gallery shot of the bike has the seatpost slammed all the way into the seat tube, what great attention to detail.

If they mean chill in the modern interpretation like "Netflix and chill" then count me in. Otherwise a cheap crappy amazon bike is a cheap crappy amazon bike. The amount of those I have seen over the years that are f'ed right out of the box is yuuuuge.
