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)

The Draft is an ok entry-level bike too. Not great, but for the price, not terrible either.

yea, claimed lifetime warranty on frame and fork too. for $99, that was a steal IMO, for a get around town bike, hard to beat.

Man, gonna keep an eye on Bonktown today(more than usual). $99 is a steal for a beater bike, it's certainly better quality than the Walmart Thruster for $99.

The short wheelbase on yer bike is rockin' how do you deal with the toe overlap?

For $99 I'd would've bought the draft, but I missed it

Yup, that's exactly what I was going to say. Sadly, 49cm is the smallest size. Dang though, the TT on a 49 is 551mm?

Dude, if you're contemplating suicide over an SE Draft, you're a troubled young man.
