After hearing about this bike everywhere, and being a fixed gear rider, I decided to purchase one as a spare bike as something to run errands with. First the Pros: Price: Nothing is this cheap, sure you can spend a little more on something else, but I genuinely don't want something nicer, I wanted a bike to throw around scratch up, crash, and eventually have someone steal it, and for this price it was exactly what I was looking for. Looks: I must say after I have removed all the decals, reflectors, chain guard, and kick stand, this is one cool looking bike! It's completely black and white and looks cool! Flip Flop rear wheel: This is a bonus, and was initially what attracted me to this bike. The great part is that it came with a chain tensioner to even out the rear end. Small Pros: Radial front laced wheel, pedal cages with straps, decals are easily removed with no residue, wheels are painted white to match quill stem, bars, and chain. Wheels also came true. CONS: This bike needed serious adjustment. If you don't have any mechanical knowledge or bicycle part knowledge, this may make or break your purchase of this bike. Here lies the kicker! If you don't have mechanical knowledge or bike tools, I would recommend that you bring this to a local bike shop for them to tune and assemble. This may cost you up to $50, now that would turn this purchase into $200, and you may not see the value now. But this all depends on your aptitude, and willingness to try to do it yourself (Which I recommend highly!) You can always go online and find out how to do anything with a bike, and there are many great teachers (Sheldon Brown, BikeTutor, Etc.) Headset: The bike I purchased needed an immediate headset adjustment. It was tightened so much that the fork would not turn unless yanked. I removed, regreased and reassembled the headset. It turns easily now! Brakes: The design and overall manufacturing and parts of the brakes are not to be desired. Unless adjusted perfectly, they will never clamp correctly. These brakes are reminiscent of 1988 BMX side clamps with a never ending rotating pivot. NOW if you intend to ride this bike as a fixed gear, this would not be a problem for you. I would recommend throwing away the brakes instead of trying to sell them to someone (that would be WRONG!) :) Bottom Bracket: This needs serious lubrication! It spun but no where near where it should be. I removed and regreased the entire BB. Size: This bike will not fit riders 5'6" (168cm) or below. I would even go on to say if you are 5'7" do not purchase this bike, it is too large for you and you would be uncomfortable. OVERALL: This a great value for the dollar! After I adjusted everything, it felt great. The first ride on it was perfect, it steered nice and rolled smooth! Note: All my adjustments took about 3 hours with proper tools!

Ordered this bike a few weeks ago, and it picked it up at the store in about a week and a half. Assembly was pretty simple, but I probably wouldn't recommend letting Walmart do it. If you've assembled a bike before you won't have any problems, if not pay a couple bucks and take to a bike shop to build, get it sized and know you're having it done correctly. I'm very satisfied with it so far. I've ridden a few miles a day for couple weeks and haven't had any problems at all. I'm not an aficionado, and was just looking for a cheap, simple, good looking bike to ride around town and look cool beside my friend's trendy bikes. This bike was that. Take off the stickers and no one will know it was $150 at Walmart. It sits at about 55cm by my measurements. I'm about 5'9'' and it fits me fine. It would be fine for someone a few inches taller, but anyone much shorter might have to stretch. It does have a flip/flop hub if you're looking to make it a fixed gear, just needs the cog (which is cheap). Maybe the breaks and the pedals aren't the highest quality, but if you like me haven't ridden too many $700 bikes you probably won't notice much. It isn't ultra light, but I carry it up and down a flight of stairs everyday without much trouble. Basically for the price you can't do much better. It looks great, rides fine and won't cost you much. Looks like they're selling pretty fast, so if you see it in stock I'd grab it while you can. I waited, it sold out, and had to wait a week before they got it back in stock.

The main problem with bikes from wall-mart is that they come with junky components that break. This bike having a minimum of those parts is a good bike as far as bikes from wall mart go. Probably the best in fact. If you identify as hipster this is perfect for you. I personally rode this bike for 1 mile in a hipster parade, and then promptly threw it in a river for safe storage(aluminum frame doesn't corrode!).

Along with the increase in popularity of fixies, so has the number of thefts here in LA. I already have my "perfect" irreplaceable bike, and I get really anxious whenever I have to lock it up out of eyesight for any amount of time. So I've been on a mission to find a solid beater that can get me around town, I can practice on and scrape up, still has a bit of style (read: not a $50 full-suspension MTB), and if it happens to get jacked, I won't mind...as much. Enough of my story, let's get to the point: The price @ $150 is perfect. I'm 5'8" w/ a 30" inseam and this frame is just a bit too big for me. When standing over the bar, I'm on my toes. I measure this to be a size 55 frame. Pros: -Price (worth mentioning again) -Nice color choices, a clean simple look -All graphics are removable stickers. I just looks better, Mongoose or not. -Pretty lightweight. Somewhere between 22 and 25 lbs. -Nice ride. Nothing amazing but certainly better than you'd expect for $150 -It DOES have a flip-flop hub. The questions and answers section states it does, then another answer says no. Again, the Quando hub is a flip-flop; I put a spare 19T track cog on the other side. Cons: -Cheap brake calipers. They work properly but not impressed with the build quality. Removed the rear but will likely replace the front. -Bad tubes. Not only is the Schrader stem on this size of a tube just odd and not readily available, it leaked immediately after I filled it to 100psi. Replace tubes with standard Presta valve stem type; they still work fine. -Pedals feel wobbly when riding as BikeSnobNYC stated in his review. -Cheap uncomfortable seat. Will likely replace. -General overall cheap components but then again, the entire bike is costing you just over a bill. Other thoughts: -This bike without close inspection actually looks too good to be my beater bike. Someone may likely steal it only to find that there's nothing worth reselling for much. -Wheels were true for the most part but if you have a spoke wrench and the knowledge, they can use a minor tweak here and there. -I personally don't like the white chain so will be replacing it. Overall: Great bargain for someone that's new to this scene and can't afford to buy the priciest stuff out there. Perfect 2nd bicycle to lend out to friends or for my reason stated above.

I bought this bike online and it promptly shipped to my house. I bought it to Eriks Bike Shop to get it assembled, which seemed pretty straight forward. It rides AWESOME and its super strong cause Ive crashed it a couple times and it held up fine, just scratched the paint. I took off both breaks to save weight. The bike probably weighs under 20 pounds now. Because this bike cost me way less than $200, I was able to spend money on some upgrades. I got the handlebars chopped so urban navigation is easier, and i also got matching grips and tires. Im glad I got this bike because all of my bros let me ride them now that Im fixie too.

  • A. One speed. Cant shift. But, if you put a different size cog on the flipflop hub you would technically have a two speed!

  • A. It's fixed at one speed. Although somewhat deceiving since it's VERY close to being called a fixed-gear (which it is not), it's just a fancy way of saying one-speed. You can coast when you want to.

  • A. The specs of the product say it is a 'single-speed' meaning there is only one cog on the rear wheel. This means it can be made lighter and/or cheaper than a bike with many gears.

  • A. Fixed speed bikes used to be also known as Track Bikes and used for racing. Lately these bikes have gained popularity in trick biking. Fixed speed just refers to the fact that when the pedals go backward the back wheel also goes backward.

  • A. Normally, it's referred to as "fixed gear". It means that the cog on the back wheel is attached to the rear hub. This means the pedals turn continuously, you cannot coast. As opposed to single speed where a rider can coast. Hope this helps.

  • A. It's a bike that only has 1 'fixed' gear. It also usually does not have a freewheel so it cannot coast. If the tires are rolling, the pedals are moving. This bike, however seems to be a single speed, which is similar, but has a freewheel and brakes.

  • A. The wheels are linked to a subatomic inertia stimulation substrate, which means the wheels never actually stop turning. It is locked at 11Mph and in order to stop you must dismount and lift the bike off the ground. Remember to wear your helmet!

  • A. a fixie is possibly not the answer, especially if you have knee pain. since the bike has just one gear it takes pressure to make them move. not to be sarcastic but your weight combined with the bike makes for a lot of stress on the knees. if you can't find one of these at your local walmart consider taking a trip to a local bike shop and check one out.
