Ive had this bike for 6 months and it is great. This bike is a great commuter bike that I have used to get to school almost everyday. The bike is a quality build, especially for this price; you cannot find a better complete fixie at this price. Highly recommend.
I couldn't ask for a better, more affordable commute. Believe me -I've tried a few other "leading" brands. I ride over 60 miles a week and up 1000 feet in sea level, and it gets me there smoothly. I attached a cargo rack on the front. I actually switched bikes(to 6ku) after getting my girlfriend the very first generation of this track bike model! Amazing stuff, quality bikes shouldn't cost an arm and a leg. Bravo 6ku, I will always support thou.
Originally bought my Celeste Track as a daily commuter and it quickly stole my heart and became my main ride for the year. This was my first go at the fixed gear type of riding and was very pleased. This bike is comfortable and practical on the streets and entirely at home on the velodrome. I added a carbon seat post, carbon fork, a stem with more drop and some drop bars. These additions turned this bike into a whole other monster. The frame is fantastically light and responsive. It's quite stiff and at times can be a little harsh on rough roads, but the carbon seat post and fork alleviated most of these issues. The deep dish wheels add a high end look to this bike without a huge price tag. I would buy this bike over and over again. It's a great starting point for people interested in the single speed/fixed gear lifestyle. Also a great rig for someone trying to enter into velodrome racing/riding.
The only thing I'll knock this bike on is the standard Bullhorn/Pursuit bars. Personally, I believe any true "Track" bike should come standard with Drop, or Pista, bars at the very least. The bullhorns made me feel like I was doing a Superman pose while riding, and that was very uncomfortable on the velodrome. Definitely and upgrade to do soon after your purchase.
I am in love with this bike for more than a few reasons. First, the aluminum, while stiff, is awesome in the northeast where road salt would rust the crap out of a steel bike, not too mention that it makes this the lightest bike I've ever owned. The gearing is very aggressive which is perfect for me because I ride mostly on flat terrain and have a good ratio of leg strength to body weight. I can FLY on this thing.
Included brakes are so-so, I replaced them with some Kool-Stops. Important: the front fork is too narrow and close to the brake pads for the Kool-Stop dual compounds to fit, so get the smaller pads for up front. The back fits the dual compounds just fine, though, and they work great. The seat is also pretty meh, but it's an easy and relatively inexpensive upgrade to grab a Charge Spoon.
If you are going to be on mostly flat terrain and have decent lower body strength, this is the fixie for you.
