I went back to the bike shop today to take another look at the single speed I glanced at the other day. Turns out it's a Purefix, costs 325 plus tax. It looks nice and all, but I hear mixed things about them. They don't have any of the premium ones, just the standard.
On the one hand I'd like to buy from a local shop, but I wonder if I could get something much better on bikesdirect for the same amount. Anybody have experience with these bikes?
