    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?

    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.

    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'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.
