I have been looking to buy a fixie for a while, and i settled on this one because of the low price... i mean, you cant beat $100!!! when i brought it home and tried it out, it far FAR exceeded my expectations... But to turn it into a legit fixie, I made some minor modifications... first, i switched the single speed to fixed gear, then i removed the brakes and reflectors... then I removed the chain-guards and kick-stand... After that, i took off the handle bars and cut off 2 1/2 inches on each side... (major performance improvement) the last , but most important change i made, was remove the stock pedals, and replace them with metal Welgo fixie pedals with toe clips... (toe clips are ABSOLUTELY necessary for riding w/o brakes!!!) after these mods, it is an absolute JOY to ride, and i was tempted to stay up all night riding up and down my street... my friend has a fixie that he purchased for $400, and while his is obviously better quality, the riding experience is basically the same, and even he is amazed at the sheer quality of this amazing deal... I am still stunned that it was only $100!!! if you are even considering to buy this bike, PLEASE DO!!!! do the world a favor, and treat yourself to this insane fixie!!! you will NOT be dissappointed... thanks for reading my review, i hope you found it helpful and insightful...
