ok. it has come time for me to embark on my first fixie purchase. here is my situation.
i currently live in norman, oklahoma. center of the universe. lol i only use my allez now to go to class and my 3 mile ride to work.
- in about 2 years ill be moving to new york city. there this bike will be my only transportation.
so what would you go with. i cant have something to nice because even now a college campus=theft heaven and i imaigine NYC is even worse.
my lbs recommended the pista and said it would be $618 out the door which is alot to spend on a bike right now but ive got it if its worth it. but would it be better to get a more retro/vintage fixy off ebay for a few hundred and customize. ...
just curious what you guys would do . thanks alot
