ok. so i don't actually own a fixed gear bicycle. the truth is out.
i'm going to buy my first fixed sorta soon. i was gonna get in on the iro group buy but eh.
i've ridden enough bikes to know what i like. i'm into sorta long rides/commuting/whatever other excuses i have for riding a bike.
here's my problem. there's a kinda cheap rush hour near me. the shop has a great lawaway deal where you can pay a bike off for like 3 months. the rush hour is cheap and i could see myself doing a lot of cool stuff with it. i like the frame and the ride is nice.
BUT, i went browsing at some shops up north a second and there's a very nice '05 pista concept sitting there going "buy me, kyle, i will make all of your wildest dreams come true". she's such a sex machine. she's on sale of course however a lot more than the rush hour.
basically i have no other place to type about things like this but here. i'm not looking for validation, just thoughts or insight.
does the concept hold up well for everyday or is it too fragile?
is the rush hour kinda junky in the long run?
etc etc etc.
tell me the rush hour is more reasonable.
tell me to just go all out and get the concept and **** the police.
tell me something.
feel free to ignore this as well.
