Well first I would like to start of by sharing a brief story on why I would recommend it. I took the train to San Fransisco and I took my Pure Fix bike and everyone kept complementing my bike. Aside from being a great conversation starter it was very easy to carry around due to its light weight. I also was very impressed with the performance of the bike. The only reason i'm not giving it a perfect score was because of the standard seat thats equipped with; I feel like i'm sitting on very hard plastic. (which obviously I am, but shouldn't feel like that in my opinion).
