    TheFixieShack.com

    What do you guys think about this site/service? http://www.thefixieshack.com/. I am looking to buy my first fixie and I don't want to buy anything too expensive. I don't want to build one on my own because I don't feel comfortable doing so. Does anyone have any experience with this service? Can you direct me to a better place to buy one? I actually found this on Craigslist http://sandiego.craigslist.org/nsd/bik/2972909550.html Also, I was looking into the EightInch Scrambler V3 and it seemed like a solid bike. Any thoughts on that one.

    They look awesome! I'm going to buy three because I'm having a hard time deciding.

    Finally a bike shop that gets it right. The frame, wheel, and handle bar color are the most important things when it comes to building bikes!

    I bought one a while ago. James "The Grizz" is really knowledgable about fixies. He even taught me how to barspin.

    I think we all work for bikes direct, but because I don't know what you guys look like, I can't point you out in the office.

    Interesting..

    Not if I get to him before you. I'm only a 20 minute drive away

    They're typical budget conversions done up in wacky colors. Meh.

    Of the options you listed thus far, the Scrambler is your best bet.

    It was, but as soon as the bike came into contact with cardboard it became as brittle as glass. So it is not of good quality now.

    I'm not sure what's more entertaining about your reply here Mr. 151 posts.

    That you attacked frequent posters that, while we do like to heckle people who deserve it and rabblerouse a little, offer at least valid and constructive criticism of bikes.
    That you decided he should avoid "those bikes" when he wasn't asking about a series of which you gave any information other than a plural pronoun. Those? Or those? Or maybe those?
    You immediately shilled bikesdirect to a poster who said he didn't know what the hell he was doing enough to feel confident working, or building his own bike.

    So here is your special .gif. Note, this is just for you deadsouls.
