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)

That statement is an oxymoron.

The purpose of that bike is to make one person out of the entire universe (you) happy. Consequently, if you like it, it's doing it's job and it can't be crappy.

take a link or 2 out of that chain, read up on how to fit a bike- the saddle (seat) to handle bar slope is honestly painful to look at. add foot retention, remove reflectors, it is indeed crappy.
