it's definitely not, they're super light and tough, anodizing on em is great and made of a single piece of alloy.

i also got each for less than half msrp lolol


I am not sure what kind of riding that you're that weight really matters, but to each his own. I just like to save money and get beefy/indestructible parts

i honestly don't care about weight, but they do fit into the beefy/indestructible category.

They very well do, but I am a kid with a minimum wage job so I am just trying to keep it nice and cheap. I am sure we both love our bikes so that's what matters.

im sure yall already know this but: Walmart is selling Fixies now.

idk how i feel about this. Yes, it is just another example of a major company tryin to cash in on a underground lifestyle. but on the other hand, it might provide those on a budget who really wanna get into it a chance.... even if the parts are crappy.

yea, the Fi'zik's are real nice. And i have the platforms cuz im too lazy to switch shoes because i use the bike to get to class everyday. I do have a pair of VP pedals for weekend rides though, but they are just entry level ones.

I own a '86 road bike which I converted to single speed, but I plan to convert back into a 10 speed or just buy a new road bike because I don't like the feel of the single speed. I also own a purple low rider, which I plan to sell. It was formerly a girl's low rider bike with several "star" stickers on it, but I just removed them all. Now, it is just a plain purple low rider, which I ride sometimes.

man, before you drop any money, you should definitely try riding one first. Your previous post made it sound like you're just gettin into fixies. They're really not for everyone.
