    Republic Aristotle?

    I've never heard of this company and can find no real info about it,(outside of a google ad), nor any reviews of their fixed gear bike Aristotle.

    I'm thinking it might be a little sketch-sketch as the price seems a little too good to be true...maybe.

    Interesting. Hi-ten steel, a bunch of no name (or, in the case of named companies, no model name and inappropriately sized) components, and three sizes for $350? Doesn't sound like such an amazing deal to me - schwinn cutter, se lager and many BD models do the same at around the same price.

    Give them credit, though - mixing and matching colors is a smart idea. There will probably be a bunch of people willing to spend money on something that looks cool, even if it weighs 30lbs.

    Yeah, the colors thing is kind of a cool idea, but it seems like these bikes are tailor-made for hipsters, ergo both hipsters and non-hipsters will reject them. Save $40 and you can have a bike with a brand name on it.

    24lb stock, 72 deg. ST/HT (which basically means the things going to ride and handle a lot more like a touring bike, which is just about the polar opposite to track bikes as far as geometry goes) and 175mm cranks? The only thing this frame seems like it would be good for is long road rides, which judging by the fact that there's riser bars and no water bottle mounts, is not what they had in mind. What idiot decided to put this thing on the market?

    hi-ten, heavy, road geometry, I'd pass.
    Looks kinda cool, got to admit that though.
