Fixed gear bike to buy?2ride
Feb 25, 2003 5:49 PM
I'm looking for a fixed gear complete bike and would like any recommendations. Bianchi? Surley? Gunnar? I would like a more relaxed geometry than a typical track bike setup. I'll be using it to ride fairly flat roads with an occassional small hill. BTW, I'd like to keep the cost under $1,000.

Thanks.

I have been told that the Fuji has more "road-like" geometry. With brakes and levers it will be about $700.

Another great bike that I have test road and just purchased the frameset myself to build is the Van Dessel Country Road Bob. Not your usual looking track bike but it is really nice and more like a commuter bike. It is aluminium with a carbon fork. You can find them on eBay for real cheap, buy direct, or find a LBS that carries them.

Don't know your size but if this one fits it's a good deal.

disclaimer: I do know the seller, as it's my local LBS. They're good folks.
