    Looks like it's made of cheese but it'll do for a pub throw around. I wouldn't personally want to fix it but keep it SS.

    Then again I'd personally keep a look out for a second hand spesh langster instead.

    Save some money and buy this SE: http://www.tritoncycles.co.uk/m14b0s180 ... Draft_2012
    You'll then have enough cash to buy some full guards, which will actually fit this bike - unlike many fixies. For this reason it makes a good commuter / pub bike. I had one for this & it was perfect - just change the brake pads & it works fine. I'd go as far to say, I quite liked mine even though it was just hi ten steel - good fun.

    I'd be worried if you were getting something light at under £200!
