If you're at this page, then you've done your homework. You know that you can get a similar frame, parts, and even complete bike sets for a little over half the price of Pure Fix. So why did I choose to buy Pure Fix again, this time at full retail? I wrote to them to tell them that I was saving up for another Pure Fix, and they actually issued me a discount coupon towards a new one! These guys mean customer service. Scroll through these reviews and you'll see that they actually answer customer complaints and address them. That's not something you'll get from the no-name Chinese fixie brands.
As to the bike itself? Well, not much to go wrong with it. It's a snap to set up if you have a socket wrench set, but if you're anal about it you can take it to a mechanic Once properly set up, the bike does not rattle, vibrate, nor make any odd noises. It's like a drop of water gliding down the surface of a windshield.
The glow in the dark paint is bright enough to be noticed as soon as the sun starts to go down. When all the colors around town start to fade, your wheels don't. That's probably how you'd notice it first. I'd say that if you have it outdoors during the day, you can actually get about 2 hours out of night glow time.
I am constantly getting compliments on this bike. In contrast to my first bike where it went unnoticed for being so dark, I (a guy) now regularly experience people talking to me at red lights and asking me where I got the bike, or being hollered at by school kids who wish they had my ride. It actually has made me kind of nervous, and I park it indoors overnight, or with a double lock when out and about.
Seriously. Do not buy this bike if you won't be comfortable with daily unsolicited attention over it.
The rear wheel on my bike actually came unevenly painted, so there appears to be an area that was not sprayed down with paint properly. They did not include touchup paint, so that's my one gripe. Would love if PureFix could hook me up with some touchup paint!
My main driving factors in purchasing a bike were:
1. I needed to start exercising again.
2. I HATE running. (Clarification: I really hate jogging. My legs were built for sprinting)
3. I have a daughter who is learning to ride and, at some point, I would like to be able to bike with her
Of course, I went through the whole thought process of whether I should get a hybrid bike with multiple speeds but the more I thought about it, a fixed gear bike was the proper decision. I wanted something where I could use my body weight for purpose of exercise and avoid coasting which you can do on any other type of bike. Essentially, what I realized is that this bike is the equivalent of running on a bicycle. By not being able to coast, you must control your speed with your legs. There is no rest going downhills - your legs are always moving. There is no easy way out of going uphill - you can't change gears.
The option of having the flip-flop hub is great in case I do want to do a leisurely ride (perhaps, when my daughter is ready to go biking with me).
The bike is nice and light. All the parts seem very durable and Pure Fix does a killer job covering all bases as far a color combinations is concerned. I initially was going Juliet all black but finally decided on the Hotel to throw some color in there in case it helps with vehicles seeing me. (Day or Night, I would say the Glow in the Dark green is quite noticeable)
When I received the bike from Amazon, I immediately took it to my local bike shop to have it assembled. (It is required for the 1 year warranty) That kind of was a bummer since I couldn't ride it right away and the bike shop was slammed with a 1 week waiting time for builds. However, this is a great thing Pure Fix is doing, not only does it ensure these bikes are being built correctly, they are providing business to these shops.
The one thing I don't really like is that the internal hub on my wheels is white where everything else on my bike is black. After the fact, I noticed pictures where some were white, some were black so I guess this is just the luck of the draw when you purchase this way.
Overall, I am very happy with my purchase. I know there a plenty of fixed bike sites out there that let you customize from wheel to wheel and tip to toe but ultimately, I went with a Pure Fix. Everything about the company seems pretty great. From my research, People are always raving about excellent customer service, how responsive they are as a company and how well their products are constructed. From my experience, I can attest to the quality of their products. There website and videos are great as well. Also, with being a Prime Member, I got this bike in two days with free shipping! How can you go wrong?
But, the bad: issues with the rims--blown three tubes in 2 months. A bit off center. The mechanic took his time on the second snakebite--and still he deduced it was the rims.
So, prepare for upgrades if you want to progress. In the meantime, excellent bike for the price. Reminds me of old skool Specialized. Can't go wrong if you are serious about the sport and want to go long term.
As far as the bike, it is beautiful. Classic white by daylight and glowing by night. I love it, except for when I'm trying to sleep and it's lighting up my room, but that's the price of downtown apartment living I suppose. :) great bike!
