    anyone check out them SE fixed gear bikes?

    i was in my local shop today, and i noticed that bmx company Se, i think it is, came out with there single speed bikes, or track, or horizontal dropout bike whatevers, i don't know cause the bike i seen had 2 free wheels on it.

    but anyway, anyone heard anything abut these bikes? the one i seen had a price tag on it for only $279., the crank looked like **** though.

    I looked at the cheapo at Performance out of curiosity. When I picked it up to check the weight, the whole thing burst into flames and killed 3 nuns that happened to be standing close by.

    And they come with a 1pc crank.

    And they're gaspipe.

    It MIGHT make a good bar bike.

    the general consensus is: crap. stovepipe tubing and a one piece crankset.

    it wont. mainly because anyone that buys an SE track bike is trying so very hard at the fixed 'scene' and by showing up on that bike will only be looked down upon. regardless of the slack as **** geometry, the one piece crank makes it no better than a dumpster conversion.

    I test rode the one that's like 400-500 bucks or something. It wasn't too bad, wasn't that great.

    not too much to add...poor quality tubing, one-piece cranks, and relatively heavy. was looking at one before b/c of the price, but steered away right after looking at the specs. i think there exists more bike for the dollar out there.

    My friend (who is a girl), just got into riding single speed about a year ago and bought the SE draft because it was a cheap complete build, and was one of the only SS completes she could find in her size. She has a 15 min ride every day to and from work, and it's held up so far. I don't think anyone buys that bike thinking it's a piece of gold, but I guess like everything you have to start somewhere, and I'd rather her ride that the first year of learning than a lot of kids who up and buy some spiffy track frame and think they can ride it.

    I cant see how it could be better than a kiloTT at about the same price.

    I have a Lager, and I can say you shouldn't buy one I swear the bike is filled with lead. It weighs almost 30 lbs stock. Basically every single part it comes with is heavy. even the screws for the bottle cages weight .25 g more than other ones... Basically I would say you should go buy another bike, like a Killo TT or a Iro group buy or something...just not this one. And the Draft, the one below the Lager, weighs more...alot more. Another thing... if you were going to buy a FG/SS for the sake of having one, and didnt care, and it was like a drunken pub bike or a campus bike ( like me ) then you could get away with it, but there are still better bikes out there for around the same price....I can also upload pics if you want...just PM me...or else I will forget.

    Oh, I have no idea about the SE Premium one...it wasnt out when i got mine, but 2007 lager and drafts are something to avoid.

    Images of my SE Lager attached below. Since I have removed the rear break, and replaced the seat, and removed the bottle cage. I have also removed that stupid top tube protector for two reasons, I have grip, and its ugly, and I don't really care about the paint or frame.



    Good fun none the less, but really there are alot of better bikes out there.

    Also it should be noted that the Draft isn't a fixed gear.

    I know it comes setup at a SS but does it even have a fixed side hub?
