How much do I have to spend to get a decent setup (with brakes)?


Bump.

And what do you guys recommend?

Personally, no more than 350. If you want something just to get you rolling, a lot cheaper.

Any time you want to get a decent fixed gear for sub $350 you either gotta go bikesdirect or hunt craigslist like crazy. You can get a pretty good deal for $300 if you can swoop on a deal on CL.

might sound like a stupid question but I'm just trying to clarify, with a fixed gear bike you can't stop pedaling at all right? no coasting?? that sounds ridiculous, shits mad fun.

if you cant coast, can anyone recommend some brands to look our for with regular road bikes? I need to bike to school now and a bmx aint cuttin it.

You can't coast but you don't really pedal the whole time. If that makes sense lol. For road bikes, look for anything cheap, made in the 80's or later.

I was on vacation in the LA area not too long ago. Took my bike with. I noticed so many young kids (14-17) riding the most flashy fixed geared bikes. I wasn't aware it was still a trend to get deep v's and color coordinate everything. And they never even seemed to ride them, they would put the on the front of buses, or walk them down the sidewalk. Even when they rode, everyone rode on the sidewalk.

I got lots of weird looks when I was riding the streets.

Also, fuck freestyle bikes.
Also, fuck suicide brakes.

hey after years of contemplating on getting a fixed gear bike, I'm finally putting the money out to get one. I dont want to go all out but my budget is about 200-300. What should I be looking for?

http://toronto.en.craigslist.ca/tor/bik/3109253480.html

Is this worth looking at?

This looks great too but it might not be available. Any other ideas/ recommendations? Should I just buy a new one for 300?

Unless you have really long limbs, that's probably a bit too big.

I bought my first bike from a friend. It was used. Buying a complete will be 95% of the time cheaper. However, if you have the patience, you can build your bike piece by piece for cheap, if you constantly look through ebay and craigslist. I find that swap meets are great places to find deals.
