I love my purefix. I got one as a commuter bike, it was the lightest weight bike I could get and the most customizable- I have a grey frame with sky blue rims, and I had a rear brake added to the basic setup. I've had it for four years now and I do less work commuting, now I use it as my errands workhorse. This is a sturdy little bike and I've carried everything from a carton of eggs to a 50 lb bag of cat litter strapped onto the rack. Living in cities I know there's a pretty high chance my bike won't be mine forever, but if someone ever manages to nab my bike I'd get another purefix no question.
