    ... from A to B as expected and it looks great. However

    4/5 William Strahan - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Critical Cycles Harper Single-Speed Fixed Gear Urban Commuter Bike (Sports) It gets me from A to B as expected and it looks great. However, you get what you pay for so some of the parts are cheap -- throw some new brake pads and tires on this and you've got yourself a great bike. A couple reviews complained about the handle bars moving but after REALLY tightening the bolt for the handle bars, that's no longer an issue for me.

    Awesome daily commuter

    I recently moved to an area where daily bike commuting has become an option for me, so I'm only just getting back into riding a bike - My review is written from that frame of reference. Also, I'm rating it 5 stars based on value (obviously there are better bikes, but none that can even remotely compete at this price level). I've been using this bike as a daily commuter for about a week now, so granted, my review is based on relatively limited use. That being said, this bike is AWESOME for $199. I challenge you to find another bike remotely close to the quality of this one for the same price (besides used/self-built). I wasn't ready to invest the time/effort into hunting for a used bike (with potential issues) nor do I have the expertise to comfortably build a bike from the ground up. My goal was to find an affordable, decent quality, good-looking, simple and comfortable daily commuter for a relatively flat area. Critical totally delivered on every front... 5/5 MWK (MA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Good if you are unsure about biking and single speed/fixed gear bikes in general

    I have had this bike 2 weeks so far, and I have only driven my car once. It's been a really awesome experience so far and I have ridden about 125 miles on this bike. If you are entertaining the idea of riding a single speed/fixed gear bike, I think this is a great bike to explore on. It's incredibly cheap and very stylish. I have had some bad experiences on the bike due to its quality, but you can only expect so much out of something in this price range. So, if you are expecting to get this bike and never have any issues, do not get this bike.- Putting it together was not too hard, but I highly suggest either doing a lot of research and tightening/checking every bolt/nut or take it to a shop to have it inspected.- Make sure the brakes are set/adjusted before riding. Mine were severely mis-aligned. You might even want to take it to a bike shop and have a professional do it.- After about 75 miles of riding my rear tire popped due to poorly applied rim tape.
