Review
The Fixed Gear Single Speed Urban Road Bike, as the name suggests, is a bicycle meant for use within the city or the town. The bike offers a quite smooth and enjoyable ride experience. In fact, the bike is really quite fun to ride. It offers two riding modes- single speed and fixie and it is ideal for coasting along the city streets. Equipped with a Hi-Tensile steel frame and a steel fork, the bike is quite strong and robust and is extremely light at the same time. Weighing at only 24 pounds, this bike is quite easy to handle.  The bike has a slick and stylish look which is definitely going to attract some attention.
The bike is available in three sizes and the following is a rough guide that you can use to pick the one according to your height.

Height 4’6’’ to 5’1’’:   50 centimetre frame
Height 5’2’’ to 5’6’’:   50 centimetre frame
Height 5’6’’ to 5’11’’: 54 centimetre frame
Height 6’ to 6’5’’:      58 centimetre frame

The brakes of the bike are a little sluggish and you might want to have those upgraded.  As with most bikes in this category, the saddles are not at all comfortable and this one is no exception. The saddle is not comfortable at all and it is best to have it replaced if you want to enjoy your rides completely. The pedals are also quite cheap.
Overall, this bike offers a nice and smooth ride experience and can serve as an ideal commuter within the city. It can also be used for exercising as well as just for cruising along the city roads. The price of the bike is just right and if you are looking for a city commuter within a small budget, this one is definitely recommended.
