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)

My First Fixie

I am thinking about ordering a bike from http://www.bigshotbikes.com/ .This would be my first fixie. I have never ridden before and i m not looking for the all pro expensive bike. I am wondering if this is a good bike for this price, they only coast $385 and look pretty cool. Is is a good choice?

Everyone in SSFG is going to say go for a Kilo or used cl, or other bikes from BD if you have $400.

You want a bike that won't break down on you. Get a simple Motobecane Track or Windsor the Hour on BD. Much better investment.

Buy a Motobecane Track in white and get a colorful Weinmann DP18 wheelset from Velomine. It'll run you a few $$ over $400 and be 100000x better.

People with over 1000 posts on a bike forum have no right to make fun of someone for having bookmarked said bike forum.

We clearly have a /b/tard here guys; him asking about bigshotbikes simply backs up this claim.

Seeing as how his name has "96" on the end it.... an educated guess is he's 14.

I bet he can't even triforce.

I've also been fooled by it. Twice. Nice sig, though. lol

Oh and Nick, if you like it; buy it. The folks on here have made their suggestion. If THATS what you want it to look like, and you want it, just order it and ride out little homie.
