Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

New Fixie Please Help :)


Hi guys, Im new to fixies. Im about to get this bike, but before I do, I want to know if it will be decent for the money. It weighs in at about 8kg, aero frame with a deep dish flip flop on the back and a deep dish on the front, NOT the wheels in the photos. He wheels are good, but the bike is being sold to me froma. Friend for $250, with the wheels, ready to ride. He got it from Alibaba or something, but please dont judge it just because its Chinese and cheap. No, it wont be as giod as a JRI frame but I just can't see if I will have fun on it. Ill be running it with bullhorns or pursuits, and a pair of drops for casual track riding. Thanks in advance!

Those bikes look like the exact same poor quality as the bike listed in the OP. Even after the exchange rate they look like a horrible value.
