    BigShot "custom" single speed / fixie

    I am looking to go the single speed route for a commuter/fun bike and stumbled across Fixed Gear Bikes | Custom Cruiser made easy | Single Speed Bikes For Sale | Fixies and cruiser bicycles from Big Shot Bikes that offers "custom" single speed / fixie setups for what looks like a decent price. Watched a few YouTube videos on them, and people seem to be pretty happy with them. Anyone here have any experience, or know of anyone with one of these?

    I will say, I am intrigued by bullhorn handlebars, and will more than likely be ordering one of these, with those bars. I have spent the better part of today messing with the builder for color combos.

    It is fun, but not all of us know how, or have the tools. I for one, don't know how to fully build one, nor do I have the tools. I purchased the bike, and kind of wish that I would have gone a different route. I have spent almost three times the price of the bike in modifications and upgrades. That is all by choice though. The bike would have been fine to ride right out of the box.

    Yea, I was thinking about bar/beater bike or a bike to throw on the rollers. It seems pretty cheap for that. My problem if I were building a bike up I would start looking at nicer stuff and end up spending 2 or 3 times more than what they are selling it for.

    Your time is worth something too. I do my own maintenance, but I would rather ride bikes than work on bikes.
