Well I caved. Went to one of our local fixed gear stores. They had Purefix bikes for $299 out the door if you paid cash, which seemed like a pretty good deal to me. So I now have a white 58cm purefix with black rims. I like is so far just from the little bit of riding around I've done.

Not bad. Steel? That looks actually quite awesome for 3. If u like it only thing u might wanna upgrade would be crankset for better/different ratio or change out chain rings n cog. Dependent on quality of wheels n hubs, if on the good end just trueing! Springs almost here!... Sorta

Yeah, its a hi-tensile frame. I will most likely upgrade as I go. First thing is a set of drop bars. I'm not too partial to straights.

those purefix bikes are pretty good parts-wise. especially at that price point. im rocking a set of fyxation bullhorn pursuits on my bike right now. theyre comfy as hell and with a set of cane creek tri brakes, you can still have that stopping insurance. ill post a pic when i get everything squared away and it looks better.

Made a few changes to my bike. Got a set of bullhorns and a tektro brake lever to go with it. I also put some shimano a530 pedals on. Platform on one side and spd on the other.
