Whether you want to simply cruise around town or you’ve got training to do this fixie will do the job and look sweet doing it. Along with good looks and choice components comes a great price. And the best part is . . . it’s made out of steel.
There’s something reassuring about steel. The confidence you have when something solid’s under you is priceless, this isn’t the case with most non-steel (alloy) bikes, don’t get me wrong, alloy is great, it’s light, it’s strong . . . but this Big Shot Fixie has the strength AND the feel that comes with durable, vibration-resistant steel. You’re not sacrificing much here because the bike weighs only 22 lbs. (or up to 23 lbs., depending on your bike size, it comes in a 52cm, 56cm, and 60cm). It has a flip/flop rear hub with a 16 tooth fixed cog on one side and a 16 tooth freewheel on the other. This bike rolls on 700c Doublestar Deep V Track double-wall track wheels.
If you’re looking for comfort while riding in the city you’re covered because this Big Shot Fixie’s got bull-horn handle bars that are perfect for riding more upright, this leads to having less weight on your wrists. Bull-horn bars also have you sitting up higher and let’s you easily see over cars and other fun objects that can spoil your fun ride if you don’t see them and they “jump out in-front of you”, this way you can wisely (and safely) find your way through traffic. Bull-horns are also great for changing your hand position, this is a simple and effective way to ride longer because your wrists and hands won’t bother you much. It’s got horizontal track dropouts, besides being functional with tons of adjustability and strong with solid construction to keep your ride tight, track dropouts also look cool!
It’s got front and rear brakes (if you strictly ride fixed and want to live dangerously while dropping a little weight you can easily remove the rear brake with basic bike mechanic tools (since all bikes require some assembly and maintenance it’s useful to have the bike mechanic tool kit, this usually leads to a passion for wrenching. Consider yourself warned). This fixed gear bike looks hot with it’s color scheme, orange frame and tires with purple wheels (which is cool while saying “check me out!”). It also comes with a meaty KMC fixie chain. All-in-all this is one solid ride (did I mention it’s made of steel?), you’ll enjoy the value and ride this fixed gear delivers.
