    As advertised!

    Absolutely crushes my daily commute to work. I purchased this bike two months ago and have approximately 250 miles on it. With minimal TLC, it rides like the day I took it home from the shop (shout out to State Ride Shop!) I've ridden exclusively as single speed, and I find the gear to be a great balance between good acceleration and maintainable top speed. If you're on the fence GO FOR IT! You won't be disappointed, and that blue jeans/brown shoes look is classic. I LOVE THIS BIKE!

    Great bike for the price.

    Alright so I bought this bike last year March 2017 which came with the deep v wheels. Ive ridden in the Twin Cities nearly every day the entire year, sun, snow, rain, wind. I’ve broken one spoke and my lock ring got loose once but I think that might of been the mechanic I had tighten it on when I initially received the bike. Seriously I probably have put on 2000 miles on the damn thing over this year and those have been my only two issues aside from some popped tubes. The bike rides great and comfortable while still being pretty stiff. It’s a little heavy but it costs $450 and is 4130 steel frame with the deep v’s. I replaced the pedals right away to some fyxations with straps and have literally never flipped the hub to freewheel. The bike looks great and is a joy to ride. I had a Fuji feather the previous year and I beat the hell out of it just like I’ve beaten the hell out this bike and the Fuji rattled itself apart and then got stolen which I guess was a good thing because it constantly needed maintenance, bottom bracket, spokes breaking all the time, so I bought this bike. For $450 this is genuinely a great bike.

    This bike just gets me

    I love it. It’s a perfectly casual, no pressure, fun way to cruise around. Some bikes make you feel like you have to be Lance Armstrong but this one is just fun. I’d been wanting to get into cycling for a while but was always a little intimidated by the whole culture surrounding it until I found this bad boy. Can’t recommend it highly enough, especially at this price.
