- Viking CitiFix?
Anyone bought a cheapy Viking fixed/free bike for commuting? (and possibly the occasional trip to my local outdoor track).
I’m pretty tempted by the Drop bar version of this bike for simplicity/cheapness of it, but I’m really not sure how I’ll get on with an SS road bike and/or Fixie?

Send us review/pics when you get it. I have a couple sets of brand new bars
1) on one midge bar, silver
2) 3t compact drops black.
I’ll do pics etc if you interessted. They were on On One website for like 20 quid and 9.99 respectively so are both worthless/cheap innit.Posted 4 years ago
edit: midges are down to 14.99! Mine are even more worthless..mtbtomoMember
This was mine, just before I sold it to someone on this forum:
I’ve said this before but for the money, I maintain it was an absolute bargain. Simple and serviceable, with a fairly good position for singlespeed efforts out of the saddle (i.e. quite stretched). The stock bars are indeed massive for reach and in steel, so they weigh top side of 600g. I swapped those out fairly quickly. Apart from that, I only sold it cos I fancied a nicer singlespeed. A Trek District, which after just three months needed the bearings doing in the rear hub cos the seals are sh1te. I flushed out brown muck in place of grease. No such problems with the Viking! 🙂Posted 4 years ago
Right I’m thinking I’ll need to Change the bars and stem almost straight away. I’ve got a nice 90mm 31.8 stem going spare and a compact drop of some sort to go with that will suit me I think…
I was looking at a Deda RHM01 but I could see the midge as a goer, cheers toys, what dia’ are the bars bars you’ve got?
Also anyone tried using CX type levers? I was looking at a mates Fuji over the weekend and quite liked the idea of being able to whip off a couple of “brake looms” in minutes and have a nice clean track bike and refit them quickly for commuting duty… Maybe One for later once I’m used to the bike…Posted 4 years ago
Eh whats the bb height on that? Are you sure youll get that on the track.
When I say track I mean the occasional trip to Palmer park in Reading don’t worry I’ll not be wrecking a velodrome with this thing…
Cheers toys no rush I doubt I’ll have the bike before next week.Posted 4 years ago
Umm I think you may not want these as the clamps are too small.
QWhere are you? Postage would be by myhermes which is 5 quid, actual worth of bars is zero or whatever you think, maybe swapsies for something?
3ttt sl ergopwer, label says 46omm wide, I measured 445 centre to centre. 26mm clamp. compact drop.
on one midge 25.4 clamp, new except for clamp/mounting marks
