The Bicycling Guide to Complete Bicycle Maintenance & Repair, For Road & Mountain Bikes

Creator: Todd Downs | 2010-09-28

    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

    Everything you need is there

    I purchased the white and black colors for this bike in medium. Going in order:Shipment/Receiving:The bike was shipped very well. At first sight you would think the box would way a ton, but it wasn't bad at all. Almost everything was zip-tied to the bike frame which ensured every party would be in the box. There was sufficient light foam padding and cardboard around the parts of the bike that needed it. It was also packed neatly and organized. Everything was in the box, but i have read some of the reviews stating they were missing a few parts here and there.Build:I'm no bike expert, but i do know how to maintain and change things on my bikes so the build wasn't bad at all for me considering the bike was practically built already. So, i had my brother build it (who knows barely anything about bikes except for ride and stop). He built it perfectly fine with the tools provided and without instructions, however there is a video online instructing you... 3/5 Patrick - See all my reviews This review is from: Critical Cycles Fixed Gear Single Speed Fixie Urban Road Bike (Sports) I purchased the white and black colors for this bike in medium.

    Awesome bike!!!

    Single Handedly the best single-speed bicycle in this price range withfantastic components, A+ packaging, and amazing color options.Flip Flop Hub: This gives you the option to ride fixed or freewheel and very easy to switch from one to the other. I like riding fixed-gear personally, but it can get really tiring because your feet are moving a lot, so sometimes I switch to freewheel and then it rides like a normal cruiser.Tires: Really good quality. I've put a good 100 city miles on mine.Many pot holes, cracks, curbs, skids, bar-spins, no problems at all.Frame: The frame can bar spin and there is no toe overlap. The geometry is perfect, and the frame is surprisingly light for this price range. I've paid over $500 for my last fixie which was heavier.Handlebars: It's my first time having BMX style handlebars and I am really happy with them. I actually prefer them by far for city ridingbecause they come a little bit higher... 5/5 A. Schondorf - See all my reviews, July 24, 2012

    good bike.

    0 5/5 Barbara - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Pure Fix Cycles Fixed Gear 43cm/ XX-Small Single Speed Urban Fixie Bike (Sports) The bike arrived on time. There was a few minor defects, but I don't think it'll affect my riding, so I'll see how it goes in a couple months. The bike came 90% assembled and all I had to do was attach the front wheel, handle bars, and the seat. It fit me perfectly considering I'm quite short. The sizing chart told me to get a XSmall but I went ahead and got the XXSmall instead. Hopefully I can do a better review in a couple months when I put a couple hundred miles on it. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 25, 2015
