    $100 fixie=win. But there were some issues.

    Customer review by ErikTheRad

    This is a somewhat technical review intended for skeptical bike enthusiasts. Bottom line, this is a $100 fixie, and with a little TLC and attitude adjustment for yourself, you will be happy riding away on your stock purchase. *** I ordered online and assembled it myself. I am an experienced bicycle mechanic and had already intended to true the wheels, lubricate the cables, and repack the hubs, BB and headset. If you are buying online please have a shop or an experienced mechanic do the assembly. All of the bearings on my unit were incorrectly adjusted. They were too tight, and almost impossible to spin freely. If you're handy you can get a bicycle tool kit online for under $100, which will give you everything you need to adjust things properly. Both wheels needed truing, and the front wheel was out of dish and out of round. The front wheel spokes were also not laced properly to allow proper access to the valve. The freewheel lacks splines for removal. Fortunately the freewheel was not torqued and I was able to back it off with a pin tool inserted into the two shallow holes on the FW body. You can not easily service the hub without removing the freewheel, and once it's torqued on you may not be able to remove it. The threaded headset's adjustable race does not have wrench flats, making it difficult to grip; you might have to resort to vise-grips. The slotted washer slid around when I tightened the lock nut, causing some superficial damage to the threads on the steerer tube. The stamped sidepull brakes seem flimsy and are a little hard to center, but they work just fine. Brake levers have resin bodies which likewise seem unsafe, but will work fine if you don't ask too much of them. I'm not certain but I believe the rims are steel. I had hoped for alloy. They are difficult to properly true but you can get acceptable brake clearance. The 38mm tires are rated for 60psi. Probably fine for popping wheelies and curb hopping. My son had no trouble laying down a skid. I don't expect the tires to last very long. Paint quality was fine, and the frame seemed solid if a bit heavy. I'm guessing the tubing is simple hi-tensile steel. I removed the decals with a heatgun and scraper. I pried the heavy foil headbadge off with a screwdriver, and rubbed away its adhesive residue with some solvent and a rag. I swapped the tires so the red tire was mounted on the red rim, yellow with yellow. That gave the bike a neater appearance. For about $100 more you could just pick up an SE Draft on sale. But this bike is just fine and a great deal. Hopefully Wal-Mart will sell bunches of these and offer an improved version next year with better quality components.

    Ordered the bike with 97 cent shipping and it arrived FedEx in 3 days ! I have another Kent bike from Walmart (GMC Denali Pro) which I've ridden several thousand miles and I expect this bike to hold up as well. This is not the lightest bike at @29 lbs. but for recreational riding that doesn't matter, I live in flat country. The bike rides well, I am enjoying riding it as a fixie. I like the kickstand and chain guard for riding around town and errands. For $99 this bike is a great value. When I took it out of the box I spent several hours taking it apart and putting it back together, and adjusting everything as needed. The wheel, bottom bracket and headset bearings all had grease, but were over tightened and needed to be adjusted before riding. This was expected after reading other reviews. Some of the specs on the bike that are not listed in the description that might be helpful if someone were thinking about changing components include: 36 spoke wheels with alloy rims. 700 x 32c tires 48 tooth chain ring, 18 tooth freewheel and fixed sprocket 100 mm front hub spacing 110 mm rear hub spacing 73 mm bottom bracket shell with 114 mm square taper spindle 170 mm steel cranks 1 inch threaded headset alloy stem with 1 in dia. handle bar clamp. 32 in. stand over height 21 inch top tube and seat tube length 1 inch dia. seat post

    Customer review by 66SARGE

    5.0 stars by 66SARGE

    I waited a week before purchasing this bike after I saw it initially in my local Wal Mart. When I went back, I prayed one was still there for me! It looks cool, rides perfect! I, ofcourse had to tweak it a bit but once done... I have ridden many miles on it in just the short time I've had it... I would highly reccomend this bike to one who is wanting a road racing looking style type bike with all the advantages of a 21 speed without the haggle of shifting and adjusting derailers. I've added a few lil accessories already but this SINGLE speed bike is perfect for my riding needs and I look forward to many years of satisfaction with this bike! SARGE

    • A. No, this is a cheap cheap tank of a bike. I wouldn't pay more than $40 for it without the e-bike components.... But All of the components are the same as their retrofit kit and can easily be transferred onto any other (good) bike you can buy later. This is one of the best features of the e-bike.

    • A. Nope but it's $100 so figure you'll be swapping and upgrading anyways. I've found colored quick release axles for under $15 on amazon.

    • A. No, both axles are nutted. It's ready to commute. Just grab your lock and messenger bag. Ihe steel rims and huffy-class caliper brakes are nothing special, but it's a $100 bike! The flip-flop hub, freewheel and cog + lock ring would cost you more than that (quando brand aluminim hub).

    • A. The rims on this bike take 700c tires. The 700 refers to the diameter dimension of the tire and rim. Tires come in various widths. The tires on the bike are 700x38c, meaning they are 38 mm wide. Other widths will also work on the rims. The width of the rim determines the range of tire widths that will work well on it. The rims on the bike have an inside width of about 20mm. This web site: Has a table showing tire width sizes that will work on various width rims. The clearance between the frame of the bike and the tires will also limit how wide a tire can be put on before it rubs on the frame.
