    Please help determine what I have, thank you.

    Have a fixie bike but do not know the model or brand! Any help would be great. G1108096677 is the serial number located under the body. Vitesse Racing seat with a Vilasium hub and Artek brake.

    These handle bars retail at like $250, normally they are on the other side ... but not on this model, don't know who put these rubber on the handle, if you remove them your should see a serial number starting at AA, if so they are early 2013 series and could definitely worth around 250.

    No matter how terrible that thing is, I am dumbfounded that they can somehow build, assemble, ship, and sell a complete bike for $100, and presumably a few individuals along the way are making money on it.

    Hell, I just paid that much for a set of tires and tubes that I'll need to replace in a few months. Remarkable.

    Why did the manufacturer put the brake on the rear only? That makes no sense...

    Because that's the minimum CPSC government requirement. Look at the Kilo TT, same thing.

    There are approximately 15 thrusters at my college, and all the same color(s).
    I wonder if they ever get confused...

    The resell value on that thing is virtually nothing.

    Nawww. Flip the bars back up, fix brake lever orientation and cable routing and $30 should be attainable on CL within a week.

    Sold out. Seller has zero feedback. I wonder how many will actually show up.
