"I love this bike. My geared-bike friends don't really get it, but for you fixies, I highly recommend it. Also - the price has dropped since I got mine. Base price as of September 2007 is $499."gramby

Ease of use

No muss, no fuss. It's a fixed gear silly rabbit!

(5)

Quality of Construction

The frame is built by Waterford, and it's got an excellent paint job [PBR Blue]

(5)

Comfort

Very comfortable for long rides.

(5)

Durability

I suppose I haven't really hammered on it enough to give it a five, but it hasn't had a single problem in the past year.

(5)

Value

Compared to a Langster I think it's an excellent value.

(5)

Appearance

Absolutely beautiful bike. Take that with a grain of salt - since it was custom, I got to pick how it looked and was equipped - so I've definitely got built in bias there.

(5)

Customer Service

Ben's Cycle aka Milwaukee Bicycle Company was a pleasure to work with.

(5)

Performance

Great jackrabbit starts and excellent cornering [it came with road slicks]. Frame geometry is very stable and very fun.

Strengths

Waterford frame, great training bike, custom web-based build program at benscycle.net - all around a great fixed gear bike.

Weakness

Well - it *is* a fixed gear bike - it can bound up moderate hills with ease, but you're definitely prone to spinout on steep descents and you'll be walking the steeper grades. I personally use mine as a commuter and for group rides that don't have any extreme hills.
