    Hmmm....damn.

    This bike is going to make a beast polo bike and winter grocery bike.

    This "urban style" bike looks like it will break in half if you play bike polo or overload it with groceries.

    Maybe I should look into getting a few pallets of these for giveaways - some companies sell hoodies for more than the cost of this complete bike

    Why are you belittling yourself for being a woman? You can be just as well educated about bikes, or anything for that matter, than any male on here, if not more well informed if you choose to be.

    But someone would go to walmart for a fixed gear if he or she is on a tight budget and wants something other than a dumpstered road bike that has been butchered.

    WalMart sells a bunch of poorly-made bullshit. Big deal, they're selling a single-speed (not fixed gear) bike. You don't have to buy it.

    This is a cycling website largely focused on fixed gear bikes and the critiquing of said bikes and related products. If you don't like, go elsewhere. I don't think that there have been any unnecessarily harsh remarks regarding this bike. Plus, I'm pretty sure the term fixed speed is synonymous with fixed gear.

    Sorry. I forgot that vegan straightedge kids are uber serious all the time.

    FYI - they're only available online and it's a single speed, not fixed.

    Its the best new fixed/singlespeed bike in its price range. I think we can all agree on that.

    How was my comment anymore serious than yours? When taken down to their essentials, they mean the same thing.
    Description of the practices of a corporation/online community. If you don't like those practices, go elsewhere.

    Determining whether or not they are fixed is difficult to determine due to ambiguity in the description and title of the product. Fixed speed is a term that is sometimes used synonymously with fixed gear, no? How does the method of purchase come into this?

    That would be correct.

    It could easily be fixed free. My friend purchased a cheap SE Draft which was sold as a single speed with two brakes, but it still came with a cheap fixed cog on one side. This bike could be the same.
