This is the 2011 Fisso Fixed Gear bike by Gavin…thanks to the dudes at Road Bike Outlet, we were able to do a little review on this bike…so let’s go ahead and get started. First off, the packaging of the bike was really awesome…very well protected and packed…Doggy really liked this box and ripping up as much cardboard and plastic wrap as possible…highlight of his day, for sure.
don’t mind that box back there…my place is clean.
After a little bit of greasing, turning, adjusting and pumping this is what all that stuff turned into, the 2011 Gavin Fisso…a really stylish and sophisticated looking bike. The classic brown bullhorn handlebars and saddle is really what sets the bike apart and make it stand out to me…it gives it an expensive look, but the price is definitely in the right area at $349 with free shipping. The Gavin Fisso also comes with a rear as well as front wheel brake…I hooked up the front brake and plan on removing the rear brake…i like it simple…one brake will do. They also give you the option to switch back to a single speed freewheel as they threw in a sunlite freewheel in the toolbox…so you always have that option.
Anyways, after snapping some pictures I took it for a spin around the hood…it is very hot in the Carolinas at the moment so this was a short lived ride (the pool has been calling my name all week). I could tell this was a good bike though…as soon I took off it was a nice and smooth ride (make sure to take the time to properly assemble your bike, AND adjust it…very important if you want to enjoy how the bike works). The bike gets goin pretty fast and stays solid…believe me, this bike is going to get some definite action and wear this weekend…I will have more to report on next week.
This 2011 Fisso comes in blue, grey and flat silver…very nice…definitely give this bike a check out…peep the specs below and check out Road Bike Outlet for more information on the Fisso.
