    SGV custom build bike

    Hey guys anyone ever buy one of these SGV bikes? They are all over amazon for $199... What do you think?

    All I'm looking for is a fixie for sliding, doing a few tricks, and cruising...

    What's your experience with them? Are they just complete crap and a waste of money or what?

    Don't be so quick to judge. I work at a university and there's plenty of them around because of cheap students. Even more so abandoned at racks because of reasons we all know. I've even had the pleasure of riding a blue one with red deep dish wheels and a yellow one with green deep dishes. Both friends of mine have graduated to much nicer bikes.

    They're heavy and very sluggish but unlike you, I'm not so quick to judge that you might prefer riding a tank at a snails pace instead of a sporty agile ride.

    So what would you suggest? Where should someone start for a customized bike?

    Seeing that you expressed interest on cheap bike I can assume you're on a tighter budget so a good place to start would be bikesdirect.com
    I heard the #kilott is nice and worth the extra shillings.
