Excellent bike, my first ever fixie.

This is my first experience of a fixie after owning both mountain and road bikes. Always thought they sounded like a laugh and I can confirm they are. This bike has proper, racy geometry and accelerates like a bat outta hell. The steering is precise and predictable and it looks insanely cool. After changing the pedals I found that it's also nice and stiff whilst the steel frame absorbs road buzz and makes for a surprisingly comfy ride, even on 23C tyres. I found the gearing slightly tall for me, down to the fact I live in 'The Five Valleys', so I will change this in the future.

However you will notice I have not rated this 5 stars, here is why:

I would class my self as an experienced rider who is very knowledgeable on the subject of bikes and so I decided to assemble the bike my self, upon delivery. This all went according to plan but a few months later I felt a grinding in the headset. I opened it up to find that when the headset was assembled, they failed to grease the bearings at all! I'd like to reiterate that the headset, including the forks were fully assembled after delivery, therefore this happened though no fault of my own. Fortunately the quality of the bearings means that they are now feeling nice and smooth with the addition of grease.
