    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.

    Just say no. You're better off with a bikesdirect bike.
    Why "derailer" is the correct way to spell the gear-change mechanism: sheldonbrown.com/derailer.html

    You know what you need? A $1k NJS frame, the perfect budget beater bike. Lock it up! It sparkly so gangstas be trippin'.
