Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

dudes i just found out airwalk has a fixie the frame and fork are only 119 and you also have the option to customize all the parts and make your own complete bike head set, stem, wheels i imagine you could get a fairly decent bike out of there for 300 us in im sure shipping isn't more than 100 check it out.

Seems a little late to be jumping on the bandwagon, don't you think?

"AirwalkFixedgear bikes have become affiliated with the street of around the world, and they are the latest influence to arrive from US."

that's about as much english as their shoes are shoes

When I was 12, my mom would buy me airwalks every time I needed new shoes. They sucked, lasted a few months, and people made fun of me for having them. I assume the same will happen with this frame.

wth is this?

There's no connection with the former shoe company Airwalk, now owned by collective licensing international (who owns Payless Shoes), right? just some random sketch company with a similar name?

just a random sketch company, probably Asian (though the storefront is English...). I'm sure if they got big enough to be noticed, there would be legal issues.

I kinda like it but why does the fork have fender eyelets? They must have been leftovers from whatever factory in China did the paint...

So they could get Sugino's name on the complete, but they couldn't afford plain 4130? At least they have their priorities in order...

I think the curvature of the chain is exaggerated by the pic's perspective and the mild fisheye effect (notice the curving of lines of the brickwall, which I assume are straight in real life)

Edit: also, the other bikes on the site have reasonable tension. Just sayin'.
Edit2: actually, all the other bikes are way over-tensioned. So **** these people.

All I know is I am now TOTALLY obsessed with that 20" wheeled bike. And I just saw that they're selling for a very reasonable price on the bike biz.

don't sell the IRO... don't sell the IRO... think about how awesome that s3x is going to be...

FWIW

I'm assuming "made by Cr-Mo"

means

"This is just hi-tension steel, not in any what related to the chromium/molybdenum alloy you are used to in half-decent steel bikes. We say it's Cr-Mo, because we like to lie."

I'm actually being sincere, I would be stunned if these frames were chromoly.

I'm also guessing "weight about 2.5kg" means "weight 4 kg".
