    Is this a decent fixie?

    http://www.aerofixcycles.com/AeroFix...Fix_s/1817.htm

    I found this link through craigslist.

    I am wondering if it is a decent bike to ride locally, short distances to and from work perhaps.

    Are they made well? Do they use decent parts?

    Riser bars can be had cheap at pretty much any bike shop/online store. Buy a bike from BD in your price range and swap the bars if you don't want drop bars.

    Sorry, but I am new to bikes.

    What are the differences in the bikes on BD? They got from $250 - $400.

    I don't know what size clamp you have, but there are a couple options here: http://www.retro-gression.com/catego...ndlebars-stems

    I'll let someone else explain why some of the BD bikes are better than Aerofixwhatever. I'm on the way out the door.

    every single part is a little bit better, thus making the bike a little bit better. often your repairs to a cheap bike will double what you would have spent on a better and (yes) more expensive bike in the first place. that's why I only buy $25,000 bikes now, they have to be better right?

    I like those retrogression risers.

    Will they fit my Langster?

    Depends on the clamp diameter of your stem.

    It looks like it's 31.8. The retrogression risers should work fine.

    So are you looking for new bars for your bike or a whole new bike?
    I recommend a Moto Track or Windsor The Hour to compare to the tanks you linked to.
    If you get either of those get a 25.4 bar - http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_saca...iser+bars+25.4 You'll probably need to cut it down with a pipe cutter or hacksaw and add some grips (oury).
    reading and searching does a body good. -

    *I am actually selling a some cut riser bars with white oury grips if you don't mind the color.

    Which of their risers should I get? What are the differences in them?

    Also, I am going to need new brake levers. Can anyone recommend me some small, sleek ones?

    Those aren't bad. I would like something a little straighter if possible.

    Perpendicular huh?
    Although that doesn't make any sense, The levers are curved to give you adequate room to pull the lever, as well as make them comfortable.
