    What else do you think about it?
    Are you actually interested in buying it from the seller?

    Stop saying "fixie", it makes you sound silly.

    Definitely not worth $400. Everything on it is cheap and generic. The ad's composed as it were a used car ad. Oh yeah, this is an AERO reply to your post.
    I can assure you that you'll be deeply disappointed in person and even more when you lift the bike up to see how much it weighs.

    I'd stick with a kilo as that specific off-brand kind of bike has always been sketchy.

    Tru dat^

    You can't just pay less for a bike that looks like another, more expensive bike and expect the quality to be the same.

    Hmm i see, thanks for the advice! guess i will just stick with the Kilo tt. The seller says it weighed 17lbs though he's probably just tryin to sell me on it.

    Good move.
    Those bikes aren't keepers and people who bought them soon realize what they did and would go to great lengths to unload them.

    Looks aren't everything... I'll make & polish up a turd and make it sound super good in my ad; will you buy it?
    Tell you what, my turd is worth $800 but since I'm nice I'll let you have for not $500 but $400!
