    These bikes are a clear case of getting what you paid for. It's a $250 bike. Third and fourth tier components.

    Probably the fixie equivalent of a WalMart ride. Nothing wrong with that if your just lookinf for something to kick around on.
    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.
