Review
This is another offering by Framed where simplicity is the theme. This bike by Framed is an ideal city commuter and offers a very pleasant and smooth ride experience. This bike is ideal for coasting along the city or town streets or for commuting within the city. The bicycle features a steel frame which gives it a retro feel. The fork of this bike is also made of steel and does a fine job in handling the undulations on the road. There are two modes in the bike – fixie and single speed and riding in both the modes is immense fun.
This bike does not ship assembled. Although it is very easy to assemble it, you might face a bit of challenge if you are doing something like this for the first time. In case you face any trouble during assembly, it is best to take it to your local bike shop. One disappointing thing about the bike, like its cousins, is the low end saddle and pedals. The pedals are quite cheap and low end and the saddle is not comfortable at all. You might have to replace those before you start riding it.
This bike by Framed is another city commuter in the bunch of similar sort of bikes offered by Framed. The ride quality offered is smooth and the price is reasonable. Make sure you check the other bikes before buying this one as there are very similar bikes with slightly different specs on offer by Framed in the same price range.
