I'm working at and LBS (just started recently), and we carry Giant, Rocky Mountain, Swobo, and Biomega. I'm looking at getting a fixed gear, but I'm having a hard time deciding which one. We have both the Sanchez and the Bowery in stock. Here's my predicament. The Giant is much cheaper, and in my humble opinion better looking. Every time I see it I like it more. The Sanchez on the other hand has better parts, and a galvanized steel frame. I'm working on a severe budget, so cost is really important.
Is there really any reason for me to absolutely avoid the aluminum Giant? I'm not going to be riding any more than possibly 50 miles a day on it. Everyone at the shop keeps telling me I'll be happier with the Swobo. What are your thoughts?
