    Post a link. Simply searching Marfik Bicycles doesn't bring up any direct sites, which tells you a lot.
    Edit: Yeah, that looks horrible.

    If no-one knows of it, you can assume it's not very good. Occasionally you'll find you've missed a hand built gem, but if it's mass produced and unknown, it's because the world decided it was best to forget it.
    I had a good bike ... so I FIXED it

    So, the eBay listing has been removed and the zero feedback seller is nowhere to be seen. Never fear, another zero feedback seller has emerged, this time in Taiwan with the same listing. Send me your money, you dumbass westerners.

    Edit, the new seller is no longer a registered eBay user. This is like whackamole.

    That HT angle looks like you could pass it off as an early path racer, so uh... cool?

    I just got into riding bikes about four months ago. I wanted a single speed bike because I did not want to mess around with gears. I bought a Forever fixed/single speed bike off Amazon for $249 plus tax. It's been working fine for me. Given I know little about fixed gears or bikes in general, I ride it home from work (30 plus miles) at least once a week. Haven't gotten any flats yet. Need to change the brake pads though. I'm sure it's a **** bike, but it has got to be better than the Marfik. Give it a look.
