  • 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: http://sheldonbrown.com/tire-sizing.html 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.

Killer Deal, Aweful Color Scheme

It was about six months ago that I originally spotted this in my local store. Initially I thought the bike was hideous, but thought the price was great. As time went by the itch I had to try fixed gear riding grew stronger and with a limited cash flow and too many bikes in my stable already I decided to give this bike a try. After bringing it home and taking it out of the box I completely dissassembled and lubed and reassembled this beast. Be aware that if you would like to remove the freewheel it may prove difficult as there are no notches for a removal tool. My initial run was with the front brake on only and with that I realized the purity of fixed riding. Around a month later I could take no more of the Mcd's theme and decided to paint the bars and back rim, install new Forte Metro tires, and replace the hard stock grips with red Oury's. The end result for me is a sweet fixed gear at a bearable price, that is a daily rider. Best of all is that it was around 130 bucks total with the extra parts! The only negative thing that I have found about this deal is that the front sprocket slips like a 32nd of an inch when locking up the crank.

I've had this bike for 1 year, 5 months. I've enjoyed using it, but I feel obligated to mention a couple issues. The biggest issue was the crank arm breaking off of the bottom bracket axle. I was able to recycle parts from an old bike of mine, no biggie, but I did have to walk it 4 miles back home when it broke off. I've also had to replace the front brakes, not from wear, but they just broke off. Again, I used recycled parts. Despite those issues, I've had a lot of fun riding this bike and I would recommend purchasing it. It's lightweight, cheap, and flashy (I get a lot of comments on the color choice).

I really really love this bike! It gets me everywhere. But I got bored of it pretty fast. So i made it my own and changed it just a little. There are some bad things about it though. The bottom bracket had some play in it after three months of riding, so i had change that out. Also, I changed the brakes and brake pads. But other than that its a great bike. And it was only $100 :) It was so cheap that i bought two. One for me and one for my girlfriend.

I recently got into cycling because my gym is 10 miles round trip from my house and i hate cardio so i figured i would buy a bicycle to help with that. I came across the thruster fixie I thought it was a really cool looking bike and for the price I couldn't say no i figured if I hated the sport it was only $100 so no really loss as apposed to say 1-5k. I ordered it online and was pleased when it arrived due to the ease of set up. after riding it for a day i decided to start looking for parts because i started to think of the color combination rather obnoxious. i put an extra $200 into the bike and I am not very pleased with my decision in purchasing this bike.

For the price you can't go wrong, lots of fun would suggest to change the seat. Really easy to make it your own , 5'8 and a bike fits perfect.
