btw, I used to ride conversions but the back wheel can easily fall out so riding fixed conversions is hella dangerous.


VISP frame?

Oct 27, 2012 @ 05:12

correct. not quite the same geometry as a track, but still enjoyable to ride.

looking into to buying a fixed really soon
my budget is around $200-300, im just looking for something very basic nothing too flashy
im 6'1 so that means my frame sized should be around 58cm right?

opinions on this?

those look exactly like the ebay bikes my friends have bought with different pedals. pretty shit parts but if you're just looking to start off or if youre gonna upgrade later anyways, its a good deal. 58/60cm should be good for you. go try on some different sizes at a LBS if you want to be certain.

What are good & reasonably priced saddles at around 40-60$? The stock one on the Kilo is no good at all!
Oct 29, 2012 @ 17:45
@guyitsmathew check out mercier kilo tt's. if stock and used, they typically run for around $200, and are very nice begginer bikes imo

what dont you like about it? i say stop being soft and get used to it, but if you cant and find it hurts too much, try a cushion/air pump pad or one of those gel seat covers.

not really, saddle choice really depends on your butt. For example, I'd take a $30 charge spoon over a $200 b17

no matter what a harder seat is going to be a more comfortable seat in the long run, brooks saddles are nice and hard and made of real leather so your getting quality and comfort a charge spoon has lots of padding and so your butts going to sink into it and after short distance start to get uncomfortable.

Have you ever had a spoon? It has the same amount of padding as an arione or aliante. I agree that a harder saddle feels a lot better (pause) but price doesn't reflect how much padding is on the saddle.
I was trying to say that the shape of the saddle and how your ass likes it affects your comfort much more than the "quality". The more expensive it is, the better it'll be made, but that doesn't garuntee you'll find it comfortable.
