    i think it's awesome.
    anytime a company can use the words "fixie" and "urban jungle", i'm all for buying their product.

    it is what it is.

    cheap, that can be good and bad, depends how you look at it.

    High quality, prolly not, but sufficient it probably is.

    Good for winter commuting/riding thats for sure.


    and for some reason that got typed out like yoda
    derailleur? I hardly know her

    If I were you, I'd hold out for Fixie 2 Electric Boogaloo. It's supposed to be better.

    No better or worse than the Hour, Kilo, Lake or any of the other non-descript Taiwain/China knockoffs.

    It is the same bike that Crosslake Sales sells on E-bay. It is cheaper on ebay even with the shipping. I have one and haven't had any problems yet.
