Hmm will have a look over there then.
Will expect aimed at the very causal maybe ride it once or twice a year non cycling type of customer.
Few years back it was Create fixies for under £200, as a rough guide, if you fully stripped them down, wheel bearings as well, then rebuilt and checked spoke tension and true, and put a new decent chain on, then they weren’t half bad as a hack bike.
If you didn’t rebuild it, common issues where wonky wheels. bearing failure through lack of adjustment or no grease, and snapped chains, loose headset, scored seatpost etc etc.
And the cost co is half the price 🙂
Be better off buying an old Raliegh record sprint or similar to play with

“They are pretty cheap for some stuff but I’ve found that some items are a lot dearer than Tesco or Sainsbury.”
Definantly go in with eyes open.
meat is about on par but better quality imo – not butcher quality but better than supermarket by a long way.
tend to go once every 6 months or so and stock up. First trip we bought next to nothing and just looked at the prices of things noting cost – if you shop branded then its pretty reasonable – if you buy the bulk catering packs of stuff as oppose to retail packaged stuff.
as we shop in aldi we only really benifit from the meat and special offers.
great for party food, cakes and cheap (drinkable) wine though.Posted 4 years agoacehtnMember
Well, no one could claim they didn’t see you if they knocked you off it.
Don’t look too bad, 2 brakes, a bell, appears to have been built up correctly as well. Brightness could be changed with a can of matt black car paint.
Would love a close up inspection :)neat or gobby welds, could be a goer for a winter hack, i would still buy a new chain and fully strip and rebuild it though, doubt pedals will last long.
Is it SS ? or fixed/free ? can’t see as someone has left the black axle packer on…. which indicates it must be well packed if the axle guards are there.Posted 4 years agomcmoonterMember
Here’s a journal of a guy who rode from Florida to Texas on a $99 Walmart Fixie.
Things broke and wore out quickly. Fair play to the guy for giving it a go.Posted 4 years agoholsterMember
Here’s the (limited) spec…
They’re selling for £140 + on ebay… might be worth buying a job lot from Costco and flogging them!Posted 4 years agomcmoonterMember

Yup It is fairly horrendous but had asked as I thought it may have been one of the original ones they had last year but reduced to clear. It seems It’s an even cheaper model and likely wouldn’t last 2 weeks commute without falling to bits.Posted 4 years ago
@Davesport this is the kinda thing Yodagoat would rock round East Pencaitland with his jeans rolled up and some NHS Gregory Pecks.
