- I’ve adjusted mine 4 times and I still deaccelerate very slowly.
- The tires also seem a little cheap but so far they have held up so I can’t say anything about them.
- The first 30 seconds of the tutorial video he sites all these tools you need (most of which where specific to the bike mechanic and not everyday tools).
- I thought I was going to need to take to a shop but quickly realized you can put this together with everyday tools.
- Overall very pleased with purchase, however, the price point is about hundred dollars cheaper than depicted because tires and brakes seem to be something that will quickly need an upgrade.
- Several years ago, I received a copy of Fixed: Global Fixed-Gear Bike Culture and drooled over fixed gear bikes.
- A co-worker sometimes commuted on a fixie and I started leaving my bike in a single gear all the way home at times, thinking about converting to fixed gear.
- In recent times, I have biked or Trikked to the gym whenever possible.
- I seldom shift on my bike and can’t shift on the Trikke.
- When the LBS declared my beater bike kaput, I thought about converting it to fixed gear.
- But after looking at conversion kits, I decided it would be cheaper and easier to just buy a new bike.
- This solid bike looks as good as some of the bikes in the book.
- The frame is heavier than my old aluminum bike, but it is well built and rides well.
- It reminds me of my first commuter bike, a converted mountain bike that I had for decades and put thousands of miles on.
- One of the tubes on the PF had or developed a pinhole out of the box and I had to replace it.
- Unfortunately, the replacement tube was also defective and burst while I was adjusting the kickstand.
- The third tube has held up OK, so I am glad it is not a wheel defect causing the leaks.
- I thought I would replace more parts but have ended up keeping a lot.
- I did put on a trekking bar, kickstand, rear rack, and my old saddle.
- It is not a beater bike, but more like a bling bike that can take some beating.
- When I ride with the family, I feel like I am not really getting a workout.
- Recently when I ride with them, I started to ride in just a low gear to give myself a better workout.
- I was expecting the bike to be of average quality, something similar to department store bike.
- I was pleasantly surprised to find the bike is well manufactured and just screams of quality.
- Even though the bike is simple in design and components, you can see the quality.
- I actually have taken the bike on several 25-50 miles trips and it has performed very well.
- I also get a ton of compliments on the bike and they are always shocked that they are priced so well.
- I know of several people that have gone out and purchase a Pure Fix because of seeing and riding mine.
- They build a high quality fixed gear bike at a more than reasonable price.
- But like other people have recommended: get new tires RIGHT NOW.
- I’ve had this bike for less than a month and just got my first flat today and I ride very clean, very paved roads.
- For your safety and also to save you some frustration after getting a new bike: get new tires.
- Don’t even ride this until you get some new ones on because you WILL get a flat and fast.
- And lastly, a note to all of you first time fixie buyers: Don’t assemble this bike yourself.
- I know George makes it look just fine and dandy on Youtube but there’s a little more to it.
- Take it to a bike shop and get it put together, no matter how bad you want to ride this baby.
- I actually put my pedal on wrong and stripped out the crank, forcing me to go to the shop and wait two weeks for a new one to be ordered.
- So yeah, you might think you put it together the right way, but two days later your pedal falls off and you’re down a whole bike.
- It’s on the heavy side for a road bike but I like the weight of it nonetheless, I’m not a weight nazi so I’m not too concerned about how heavy my bike is.
- The 44/16 ratio will be extremely difficult to skid stop on, you have to be a pro to even do one still sitting in your seat, so don’t think you’ll be skidding on this right away.
- Run a front brake and don’t be ashamed, no brakes are for the velodrome.
- Not only do I get a lot of compliments on my bike, but I might have sent you a few customers.
- Will continue to recommend, just switch out those tires!
- I’ve heard a lot of negative things about pure fix from the “elite bike people” but looking at price, looks, and customer service.
- I felt that purefix was the way to go, and I was right.
- Only issue is my freewheel is bad, it makes a knocking noise when peddling forward and gets louder during higher speeds.
- One rear axel tensioning screw was bent and an accessory screw was missing.
- If you have uneven pavement, your back is gonna suffer a lot.
- If I change it to a fixie where I can’t back pedal, the clanking sound disappears.
