This review is from: Bell Sports 109512 Brake Fix Bicyle Cable Set Am I the only person who would think that when you buy a brake cable set for a bicycle, it would mean 2 cables - one for each brake. Product arrived and was only one cable. In addition, the product description was listed as: "Brake Fix Brake Cable Set, Double Ended Fits Most Common Bicycle Brakes, Easy To Install, Comes With Extra Ferrules & End Cap". Package did NOT come with extra ferrules & end cap. Not worth sending it back. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 22, 2013

    This FIX CROSS is designed specifically for OFFROAD and CROSS COUNTRY use. This skike is a high end version of the V07 PLUS. Every detail makes this Cross skate a perfectly tuned high-end sports equipment.
    The secret of skike's offroad capabilities lies in its pneumatic tires with a profile. They can easily be inflated and allow athletes to explore all types of terrain while the joints are protected. Optional poles can be used with skike.
    The skike does combine Skiing and skating, but it's a different kind of skating and a different kind of skate-bike. Essentially a roller skate with skiing influences, the skike is a tool for offroading cross country skiing. The skike rider moves forward in a skating motion, similarly to normal cross country skate skiing.
    Designed for offroading: the new 6,25 inch rim, made of highly durable plastic, is the core of this special wheel. Further developed construction, sophisticated geometry and a new designed interiority forms a new dimension of rim.
    Splashproof ball bearings, 6901 2RS, industrial quality with cylindrical bearing bushes guarantee absolute light-run with durable use. The V7 FIX CROSS is based on the proven V07 PLUS frame

    Awesome.

    0 5/5 jorge montelongo - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Pure Fix Cycles Untaped Bull Horn Handlebars (Sports) I ride my bike fixed gear, these handle bars are nice and sturdy, made a huge difference going from a riser bar to bullhorns. The bars themselves are finished very nicely (got the white ones) they look so good without tape on them I've just been riding them without the tape. Overall it is a very good product at a great price. I ride mostly urban areas and a few big hills here and there, i weigh about 170lbs and haven't felt anything in the bars suggesting they are weak especially when I hit my cadence going up a steep hill. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 18, 2013

    Great Riser Handlebars

    I purchased this product for my friend's bike, which I am rebuilding as a surprise present while he is out of the country. After searching almost every bike place around Chicago—where we live—and all the bike websites I know of, I decided on Fure Fix's chiefly because of three main factors: 1) dimensions & color, 2) price, 3) they are almost exactly like the pair we saw on a bike last summer, which he told me he'd like on his ride someday. The bars were shipped exactly on the day they were advertised. The product was well wrapped in packaging and were in mint condition when removed from the box. They fit perfectly within the bike's original stem that is over 30 years old. Once tightened, they do not move around and feel completely secure when I put pressure onto the bars, head tube and fork. They look AWESOME on the bike and completely alter the presentation of the ride—all for the better! I would totally recommend this product to anyone that is looking for a... 5/5 KJD - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Feels like a more expensive bar.

    0 5/5 Morgan - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Pure Fix Cycles Riser Handlebars (Sports) The bar is iso standard size, so it will probably fit your stem. It's very narrow, which I like, but it may be too narrow for some. If you run a brake (or both) you might not have enough room for the brake lever clamps and your grips. I run a brake, but I used bar tape for grips do I had no length issues. Very lightweight aluminum, but still strong. It's built very well also. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 17, 2014
