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)

New Ride



I bought this fixie from Pure Fix Cycles out of Cali. I went with a box bike because my custom was stolen and I just wanted something already built and relatively inexpensive. This bike is sharp and actually rides suprisingly smooth and fast. I plan on upgrading the pedals, bars, and saddle in the next few weeks. I didnt know if I would like the 44:16 ratio at first but have actually come to like it already

according to their FAQ the tig welded hi-ten steel ensures the highest quality performance and safety. ..!

I do like the blue and white though.
