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)

Yet another piece of overpriced ****. It's one of those Crosslake/State Bicycle/Retrospec/Republic cookie cutter, matchy matchy, poseur, wannabe-hipster, sort of bike.

that bike looks much better than it will ride. Those Eightinch wheels are very very heavy, and they retail for $99 on ebay including tires and tubes. That bike was made to sell and that guy is trying to make a good profit off it. Judging by his false claims about the rims, he most likely knows who made the frame and it wasn't a good name manufacturer, that's why is not saying.

Everyone here disses on colorful bikes, Like I know, sleek and professional looks good, but is it a sin to enjoy a bunch of fun and color in your life? Like I am not into the elitist, trendy, hipster mentality, but I all in all like to spice up my life with color as often as possible.

But this bike is defiantly not good parts for the price and the seller knows it. For 450, I would want full stats, and an ACTUALLY decent wheelset.
