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.
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?

you might want to save up some more money first
@guyitsmathew check out mercier kilo tt's. if stock and used, they typically run for around $200, and are very nice begginer bikes imo


thanks for the info guys, mercier kilo tt's look nice, gonna try and save up some more cash


if your getting a kilo get the pro man its great i have one right now (also have a lot of upgrades) but its got great geometry

What are good & reasonably priced saddles at around 40-60$? The stock one on the Kilo is no good at all!


you get what you pay for with saddles, i spent 350 on mine but its hella worth it on those all day rides

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.

ok i agree, but from my experiences the more expensive saddle tends to be better in the long run, except for some stock giant seat i got for like 30 bucks, then i didnt ride very far though.
annnyways what kind of bike you riding?

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.


youre a fucking faggot, get the fuck off this site, youve already humilitated yourself enough. log off. you were probably getting weird looks cuz youre a midget with harry potter tattoos

if you're looking for something to keep stock for a while, go mercier kilo tt
if you want something to swap parts out with immediately, go SE draft

the kilo has a lot of incompatible components like a 26.8mm seatpost and a 1" headset and stem

This was my last one I made from parts I had left from all the other fixed gear bikes I sold and took parts from. Not bad for what I had laying around.




I sold it to a friend and got a vintage De Bernardi, which now I'm selling to get another fixed gear lol

Built this up and love it. I changed my gear ratio from 46x17 up to 48x17 and it's a lot better. Faster averages and less spinning.

Built this up today. I've had the frame for almost 3 years, it rides so smooth.
Running 46x16 on it, and my legs aren't used to it.

Day 2 of having my Vigorelli and a car smashes into me.
Dented my downtube & seat tube. Fucked up my crank and pedals, and front wheel.

Damn sorry to hear that. I hate how people don't look out for cyclist, on the other hand I also hate when people on bikes disregard street laws. I hope that wasn't the case. Did you get their insurance?

That's really unfortunate mate, sorry to hear that. Had something like that happen similarly to me on my Pista Concept 2006 in Cyan a few months back and put a huge dent in my downtube.
