    Noob Here few questions.

    Hey guys,

    New to the whole bike scene, so that means i know nothing at all. I was wondering, where would be a good place to start to learn about SS/FG bikes. Also any good brands out there for around $300 USD that you guys might know of? I came across this site that sells Micargis, look pretty nice but dont know if they are good. I did a search on here for the brand but nothing came up with SS/FG so i was wondering if you guys think think this is a good brand. The site is http://www.bikebuyers.com/fixiebikes...FcsZQgodFxZCCw .

    Iv looked through Craigs list and found http://losangeles.craigslist.org/wst...324498887.html . Iv seen Giant posted here before, but is this a good one?

    or what about these

    Thanks in advance.

    that would be the one for $359. I really liked the way that one looks and everyone talks about that one.

    The TT is a good starting bike, I own one and I really enjoy riding it. You want a solid frame at this point, something worth upgrading parts on in the future, and the TT is definitely a good choice for that.

    Hey i was wondering...how much of a difference is the Kilo TT to the Motobecane Track? should i save the extra couple of bucks and get the Kilo? Honestly if i get the Motobecane Track in about 4 months i can get a better one. So would it be worth it to get the Kilo or just get the Moto? Sorry for the double post just wanted to get an answer.
