This review is from: Vivos Bike Co. "Vida" Complete Chromoly Steel Commuter / Singlespeed / Fixed Gear Bike 54cm
Pros: plenty of mounting options, double walled rims, very sturdy, love the brakes. easy to get around with and has some quality parts. the tire inner rim diameter is listed at 13mm but mine were really 14mm which means you can get a bigger tire on safely.
Cons: not being in the city but near it the stock tires are nice but there is more loose terrain to negotiate than i'm comfortable with the tires so i replaced them with 700x28c schwalbe marathon tires and puncture resistant tubes. the seat is rather hard and narrow but that's a personal choice. only thing mechanically bad so far is a weird noise like grinding and stiffness at certain points in the non fixed gear.
Other Thoughts: comes with 700x25c tires not 700x23c. also no instructions are included, seems really straightforward to put it together but you have to plan for the stupidest person you know and times that by 100. overall just personal choices besides the hub bit.
