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)

Complete noob needs help with new bike

So my Wall-mart genesis got stolen out of the apartment complex. Thats the 3rd one in 2 years.

I'm now going to keep my bike in my house. I wanted to ask some of the experts if this bike is a good deal for 150 on CL? There are tons of bikes for sale, and I've decided I really want to pick up this hobby and buy a nice road bike I can grow into/ use as daily commuter.



I don't even know where to start on the items he has listed..

Thanks

Yeah, seems like a good deal. It's gonna be way better than your "wallmart fixie". Make sure you buy a good brand U lock also if bikes are prone to being stolen where you live.

What sort of sick bastard would steal a Genesis?
