Brougham/pista need your help, please!
I've been lurking for a while looking to find some info on a new fixie before I buy.
First of all ivenowned a cheap Japan no brand fixie for about a year so I know I like riding them, but its time to move up to something more substantial than my $150 junker.
I've test ridden both the fuji feather and the felt brougham as well as looked into other options such as the Raleigh rush hour and fuji classic. Basically I've searched the market between my budget and I'm aware of what's out there. At this point I've all but settled on the felt, however I came across a new white bianchi pista for $620. 50-80 more than the felt. I understand the choice should be obvious bianchi but I live in new york city and this bike will be locked outside while I go to bars or run errands. I'm afraid the bianchi will get stolen, and I won't have peace of mind while I leave it locked. How do you all weigh in?
