Falcon Fixie Value (Urgent)

Hey everybody,

I'm looking to buy a fixed speed road bike for general town use and occasional longer country trips and even multi-day camping trips (wearing a small backpack). My friend happens to be selling the Falcon one linked here, and it's really convenient for me. I'm wondering whether it would be a good buy at 140 ($220) with a D lock included?

The link is here: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=1&theater

I'm not sure of the exact model. I gather that Falcon's are of pretty good quality and ride nicely, and this one seems to be well maintained. I'm not looking for suggestions of other bikes; I'm simply asking whether this bike will suit my simple needs for a year or so with good maintenance?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Many thanks,
Sam

It's a nice enough frame, but rather tall. Is the rear hub a track hub with a reverse-threaded lockring?

I'm afraid I have no idea, although if you flick (I think to the left) from the photo there is a close up.

Thanks for your reply!
