I Know that it seems to be better to build you very own beast. But the $$$ involved carries a considerable weight. I don't think I can beat the price of the 9 2 5 but ya'll tell me. Wheels look decent and the hubs are really smooth. Steel frame I am sure is comparable to my cross check. Saddle has to go but it comes with fenders which I am digging. I rode a demo on a 40 mile charity ride with the local weather guy last week and it seemed as I had a considerable amount of weight on my hands. That was the first fixie ride for me. Not sure if it was due to poor set up or just the moustache bars??
What about it build your own or go stock?
