    Opinion Needed!!!!

    As of now, i am currently running a frankenstien of a bike, and im in need of a new one for the summer. I have looked around on BD and other sites, and then finally came across this ( http://www.roadbikeoutlet.com/single...k-bicycle.html ) It seems like a good deal to me, and i like the riser bars on it. Im looking to go fixed, and i just need some good solid advice. Im looking to stay anywhere from 100-300 dolllars on a new bike.


    Thanks guys.

    Opinion? Save a few more bucks and get a better bike. for 100 to 150 more you can get a significant upgrade from a hi-ten frame.

    OR you could look for an old road frame and convert that. Spend the money you save on the frame for the rest of the upgrades (namely wheels).

    No matter how bad things get, they can't get any better, and they can't get any worse, things are what they are, so you better get used to it Nancy, quit your B*tchin'

    I wouldn't get it, cheapy hi-ten frame, components look subpar.
    I'd get one from BD for around the same price and better frame material.

    Have used bikes always retained their value? Nothing suprises me more than seeing old road bikes with one piece cranks selling for 100 bucks or more on CList.

    Garage sales are where it's at.

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve
