Quite a classy bike this. A lot of attention to detail etc, very pretty model. Quite a big reduction in price but the original price was inflated. Fixed wheel so not to everyone's taste but a pretty good bike for commuting, very comfortable etc.

Thats the word - retro. Love stuff that is. This is great
Love this bike.
Far more attractive and tempting than the ones the "bike whores" rant about for 5 times this price.
VERY tempted.

Good style bike but I would definately want at least a simple 3 gearbox.
#6
I love the retro look a la Pashley, but be warned with a fixed wheel you're gonna have to be fit!

Got a babyfoot as Christmas present, and a club chair from these guys, great bargain price and the design is quite cool! If I didn't already have a bike...
#8
Probably cheaper to drive to Holland and buy one of the cheap bikes from Hema... that'll have gears...
What you guys call retro style is standard for the cheap "Omafiets"...
Note though that the handlebars need to come back further so that you can still ride it sittling up straight with your hands in your pockets...
#9
17kg of bike on a fixed wheel? unless your town is as flat as holland, i would say avoid. i like the looks, but uphill on one of these badboys (especially if you have some shopping on the back!) is gonna be hard work.

nice deal if what you are using it for works for you though.
#10
Just the job for hanging on the wall in a certain type of pub but come on, the only other good reason for buying one of these is the certanty that it wont get nicked.
That is one pig ugly, impractical bike shaped pice of junk.
#11
Looks like the women's is single speed (you can still freewheel) and the men's is fixed gear I'm assuming (can't freewheel, push backwards on pedals to brake). I'm saying this because there's no back brake on the men's model. Not sure though. Can't seem to find the info on the website.

Seems daft to have a bike like this fixed. Firstly, crank arms looks very spindly, as do the pedals. Don't think they'd last long if you're using them to brake. Secondly, I wouldn't like to try fixed braking on a bike with that weight (17kg - should be half that) and with those handlebars (can't shift your weight easily to the front to allow swift braking).

Bargain price but I'd be wary. Better to pick up a good track bike if you want a fixed gear (fuji=cheap & quality). Town bikes are more suited to single speed or 3 speed. That is all...
#12
Not voting because I just plain don't understand why someone would purchase a fixed-gear bike unless they were an overly style concious fitness nut... in which case I'm not sure they would invest in this.

But yeah, as someone has suggested above, stick it in a pub.

I've got a fixed gear as well as my mountain bike and carbon road bike, some of the best rides I've had have been with my fixie
#14
Here comes the fixed vs. single speed vs. gears x brakes or no brakes argument.

Some folk like fixed gear (like me): more control, purer ride and I'm a fat.
Some like freewheels: safer, more comfortable, more versatile.

Depends what you're into and used to.
#15
Where does it say fixed gear for the -M?

sotomonkey's link says:

"pedal brake in the rear. Comes with stand. Single gear"
#16
Aaaaahh! Pedal brake! Thats how it works. Not fixed then. Freewheel away.

Good price!
#17
I can't understand how this keeps getting heat when posted, as it appears to be a completely unknown quantity - no information about the manufacturer, this is the only place that seems to sell them & someone posted in the previous thread about similar styled/specced bikes for a much cheaper price?
#18
Looks like a bone shaker!

... "bike whores" rant about for 5 times this price. VERY tempted.


I'd love a definition of 'bike ****'. My bike cost no more than this one so I guess I'm in the clear. But these things really do look like the triumph of form over function. We've moved on from what the butchers boy used to ride. A bike with one gear is practically useless. So I reckon if you choose one of these you are some sort of retro-fashion-****.
#20
My other half ordered the ladies version to use as a second bike to go short distances on. A mile there, a mile back, sort of thing. She has a decent Scott hybrid to use for longer distances.
She had a look at a friends Pashley and while she loved the style she wasn't so keen on the price and was looking out for an alternative until this one popped up.

For this sort of use would this bike be ok? Thanks...
#21
some people yearn for the simplicity of times gone by, yes of course there are lighter and better bikes with gears but 100 years ago people used to travel everywhere on things like this. In the same way you could say that anyone cycling on a push bike is an idiot now that there are electrically assisted models which do half the work for you. Its the choice of every individual to choose between progress versus nostalgia.
#22
I like it and for that price its fine.Hills?Id use it for cruising around town as the stance allows for a chilled out ride.As long as its not fixed...not at the velodrome or an east end monkey yet.....pedal back is cool and lets not got serious about this regards weight etc and features gears etc that adds cost ....I have a Willier carbon road bike for that exact purpose but this would be great for jus CRUISIN say from brixton to when i start @ uni in Sept @ Elephant......Im old so this bike might suit me;-))))))))REMEMBER FOR £160 I think it deserves no bad critique as my deraillleur cost £145......I like it!!!!!!!normally youd get mash up 2nd hand or some thing from Halfords with some sick gross graphics and go faster stripes...hats off to these bods and I think with a flat bar even more perfect for £20 exta and some diy;-))))))
