Thank you for being rude
But let me clarify. I've read through the majority of the first few pages of the fixed gear/single gear threads. I've also searched through and found various bikes. However, as great you think the search ability is it doesn't help if you don't know what to search for.
Also the fixed gear start thread only let me figure out that i want a fixed gear not WHAT fixed gears are nice to start looking at.
The majority of bikes that i how found in these threads are much like the one al g blenny was looking and are very close to $1000. Some like the oneway, steam roller, and rush hour are $700.
But since i have no idea why one complete bikes costs more then another b/c of the COUNTLESS components involved. Like why are the price of the rush hour and oneway so close together but their visual apperance so different?
Alot of the bikes i first find interesting are later said to have bad this or bad that etc. etc. after furtehr investigation. for example Cannondale Capo(in THIS threaD), someone said you should replace parts right after you get it. Of course some find it untrue.
In addition, i'm planning on going to a local shop, but at the current moment i'm not able to check out Local bike shop and i'm assuming it would be a good idea to know what i want to buy before i buy it. I'm looking online(in their websites) and I find that alot of single gear/ fixed gear bikes are more expensive then some geared bikes.
So to rephrase my question.
I CAN spend a countless amount of money but for a beginner would it be worth it to be spending $700+ dollars on a bike?
If not what would be an "entry" level bike and would they be worth getting?
since no1 insulted him
i'll say i was looking at the following bikes:
Raleigh Rush Hour
Raleigh One WAy
Triton Gary Fisher
which1 should i get and wy?
Or is there another 1 i should get?
Sorry if i'm out of line.
