    fixed gear like this? <500$

    Been wanting a new fg for a while, and fkn Premium Rush inspired me to pull the trigger.

    What's the best complete bike buy for <500? Most stuff at BD is out of stock.


    Here's obviously my goal..I'm in FL

    Why would you want a bike like that, it has no pedals. How could you even ride that thing?

    You won't find anything close to what you posted for $500. That bike has pretty expensive parts on it. Cranks, BB, and saddle alone will run you over $500 if bought new.

    EDIT: Frame and a fork alone is $500.

    http://affinitycycles.com/store/affi...-frameset.html

    $1500 - $2000 build if all bought new.

    Something off bikesdirect. They should be restocking this fall according to various posts. If you're looking for a complete. Otherwise, most completes will be a few hundred more.

    There is always used.

    And always able to build your own with used parts.

    Get a Raleigh rush hour. Strip the paint. Rattle can it white. Put a ****load of stickers on it. Will look the same.

    And... It has Rush in the name so extra cred bro.

    I got some pedals I can sell you. They're pretty rad, tough plastic $80 (extra $15 if you want them pre-stickered).

    Define "safe" - ambiguous questions, can't answer them.

    is the `13 windsor hour a good choice for the money? Seems to be pitted against the kilo tt on these forums.

    my WTH was a nice bike, I sold it because it was too small. It looked somewhat similar to the bike you posted.
