Ignore the Bowery, check this thread for options for OTP fixed/ss - personally I'd be looking at the Pearson Touchehttp://www.londonfgss.com/thread6022.html
People do talk cack on here sometimes. If you are looking for a fixie and your budget is 'cheap as chips' otherwise the wife will exterminate you and your child will have no shoes, then the Bowery is a genuine contender. Add mudguards and away you go for potentially around the £300 mark all-in
i think it looks revolting. i'd rather have no shoes and a starving wife and child.
It didn't come with the fixed cog attached as I was expecting so for now it is just singlespeed.
