(closed)
Hello Pedal Room,
I will be in USA in July, a couple of days in this cities - NY, LA and SF and i want your advice to get the best complete bike under 1K dollars.

I know that in SF and NY there is a plenty of Bike stores that sell fixed stuff but after some research im thinking of get the Undefeated by StateCo.
What do you guys think? Acepting any type of advice, tip or sugestion.

Thank you!

I tend to point people in the direction of Fuji's Classic Track or their Feather completes. I rode a Classic Track myself and would highly recommend it. Pedal Room is always fond of the Mercier Kilo TT.

As a general rule you should spend as much on the front aerospoke mounted backwards as you do on the bike.

You seem new to riding get the 6061 frameset from state and build it up yourself or buy it complete from them or go to city grounds and they have a ton complete builds on sale that would be perfect for a new rider. Or a leader complete. But the undefeated complete is a great entry level bike that u won't have to sink any cash into for a Long while

Thank you guys, i really appreciate your help.

I already have a converted Peugeot 10speed, and now im looking for a lighter and faster bike. with more agressive design.

Actually i would like to spend U$ 1k in the whole bike, a nice aluminum frame and the best components that my budget will allow me to buy. I like the Keirin PureBike, Leader 725 and Undefeated style.

Would you recommend me any BikeShop where i can get all the parts needed to build my bike in NY,LA or SF?
If you know anybody that is selling a really good used fixie in one of this cities im also willing to buy. (Im 6 feet tall)

Thank you!

PureFix is based out of LA, where I don't know exactly, but if your looking at any of their stuff that would be a place to start.

i'd troll craigslist in a couple of those cities a week or two before you travel there. You could probably find a few nice bikes that fit your description for way less than $1000.

You could build a Dolan Pre Cursa for that much and be happy but get the track fork.

Shame on anyone for ever recommending purefixed to anyone wanting to spend anything under a grand. But opinions are like ass holes

I really like the Pinarello Lungavita. Its a damn sexxxy bike. They can be had for $1k or just a bit below. Also the Wabi Classic looks like a nice bike. I Love my Bianchi Pista Black with chrome stays and those are under $1k too.

You can get a CAAD10 for $1000, and that bike is perfect..

For the frame alone I believe is around $800, the Sillgey phantom or pantome looks nice for the price. Lugged steel, welded in USA I believe.

I'm going to print this thread out so I can read it over an over again long after it's been forgotten and buried by other silly threads.
