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)

hey thanks for looking for me on vancouver cl!

yeah I saw that one actually, and I was considering it, but the other guy's willing to go down to $350 so I'd only be saving $150. I thought the first one was a decent bike cuz of the iro frame and sugino messenger chainring and alex rims.... but I dunno that much about parts either soo....
is the first one for $350 a better buy than this one for $200?

No clue. He gives you absolutely no info in terms of components. If you can email him and get some information out of him, then it might be. You should definitely try to go that route.

He says it's a 58 cm frame and he doesn't have a list of parts as he said it's nothing too fancy

Oh yeah.. 58 is too big I think
I have a BMX right now so not sure what size I'll be for fixie
I'm 5'9" so the 56 might fit or might be big.. I guess I'll see when I check it out this weekend

Compare your measurements to a geo chart, and you'll know if it will fit before even going to take a look at it.

Meh, i've seen a few complete CAAD 10's go for close to the BIN price. I'd pass.

hey guys, been looking for a fixed gear style bike in my town and nothing has really popped up in my size.

Saw this one today.

https://phoenix.craigslist.org/evl/bik/3575190706.html

Can i get some opinions on the bike as well as the pricing? Trying to decide if i should go used for something like this around $300 or new bike from bikesdirect.

Was thinking of getting a WT model, not sure if this can accommodate wide tires, but that is not a deal breaker. Just want the best bike for my budget.

Also saw this
