Pretty much stock with exception of pedals, bars, wheelsets and rear cog. I don't care what people say about KHS, I dig the ride. Not quite as fast as I'd like, but decent for now.

DOES

Does the pink skull get in the way when your trying to skid? xp

how do you like this bike i

how do you like this bike i have a friend who is looking into buying the frameset

Problems...

I have no problem with the frameset. It's a solid first fixie. I went into Cycle Smithy with the intention of picking up an 07 Fuji Track and walked out the door with this after the test rides. The Fuji had too much flex where this seemed rigid enough to hold up under a 215# cat cruisin thru Chicago.

As for the complete...

The parts that come with it are just ok. Definitely wanna upgrade some things if he goes this route. I am.

Hopefully that's a bit of insight.

cheers

Clean!!

I really like the machined sidewalls on your wheels. I'm running that same crankset with a 46 chainring.

Thank you

I'm in between liking the machines and wishing at least the back was un-machined... Ehh, grass is always greener.

I don't like the chainring/cog combo I'm running for general street use. Maybe for trickin n politickin... How do you feel about yours?

cogs

The combo is not bad, it definately keeps me from getting lazy going up hill. I might switch it up a little, if I do I might go a little bigger in the back, maybe 1 or 2 teeth up.

Clogs...

I'm thinking I wanna go down a few on the backside. 48/15 or 14. Not sure yet.

just picked this up bike as

just picked this bike up also & i'm likin it. what do people say about khs? any ideas on how to improve speed?

Flite one hundo...

I'm diggin the bike as well. I tried out the 07 Fuji track at the same time as this one and there was no comparison. The Flite is a better frame with better components. Not top notch but great to get into riding fixed.

As for going faster, yea peddling faster always works. hahaha! Also, have you tried changing your gearing? These came with FSA 48t cranksets and Dura Ace 16t in the back. Try going to a smaller cog in the back. It'll getcha some more speed. I want to drop a 14 or 15 on my shxt soon.

Check out this gear ratio calculator...
