City Grounds just came out the gate with a new FGFS complete bike! It’s been a loooong time since we’ve seen the legendary fixed gear shop participate in the FGFS world, so it’s cool to see them stepping back up. While the geo looks a tad dated, at $399 it still looks like a great option for new people looking to transition into the FGFS world!
Fewer and fewer FGFS companies have been in existence over the last few years and people don’t know where to get parts. This post is to shine some light on people who don’t know where to turn for new FGFS specific stuff. Share this with the people who keep complaining about broken shit on their bikes.
Chackong, a bike manufacturer out of China, recently dropped a ton of new products via instagram and this shit looks pretty solid for a great price. Not too sure about the geo and specific info about these products, but they look solid and they ship worldwide. Here’s what Samten had to say about their products: “Chackong from China, engaged in the fixed gear bicycle industry five years, we attach importance to cultural development of single-speed bike, and now we have the popular and high quality products to the rest of the world, if interested, contact us at Chackongshop@gmail.com.”
So email firstname.lastname@example.org for inquiries. Prices listed below. More after the jump.
While I was in LV for Interbike I got to see a ton of my really good friends including Matt Reyes. He snapped some really nice photos of the complete Bombtrack 2016 Dash that they had on display at the booth and it was looking really good. More photos here.
Here’s a nice video rundown of the new complete Bombtrack Dash 2016 Complete and it’s looking damn good. After seeing it at Interbike this year, I can even say it looks better in person. For inquiries, contact Bombtrack here.
Bombtrack has a special offer going on right now for their 2015 Dash completes. $599 including shipping costs. It’s a first come first serve system so don’t sleep on this! Contact email@example.com for inquiries!
