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)

Are these bikes worth buying? The Unbranded ones?

52cm Track Fixed Gear Red Alloy Road Bike Bicycle NEW

"What is the brand of this bike? Well, that is up to you. These bikes were made by a major bike manufacturer - by the people who actually build the bikes for the brand names you know. We could have bought some brand name from out of the past or made up something new, but we decided to leave it a clean canvas for you to personalize. "

they say... is this worth it or no? if not what bike do you recommend me as a beginner? i have 200$ and idk if thats enough for a good bike. if not please link me some good bikes for a beginner. and a good price... also are micargis and vilanos a good bike worth its price?

You're better off seeking out used bikes or conversions.
