(Get the middle one, in orange and black. It’s the best value and looks great.)
Handling is sharp and track bike-like but still very city friendly. Spec is sensible and pretty good for the price.
Still a few of the 2009 versions around for under $600. Good pickings at that price but you’ll be tempted on the colours of the 2010 version. Bullhorn bars and good spec make for street cred but ditch the silly top bar cushion.
Haven’t ridden this one but spec seems good. Nice to see Avanti going steel for their single speeds. Pretty sure they’ve been aluminum till recently. Get these for $700-800 if you sweet talk your local dealer.
If you’re lucky you can find one of these nifty bikes around. They have that classic track bike look. Drop bars complete the image. If you remember Stephen Pate and Martin Vinnicombe then this could be the bike for you.
I worry about buying generic bikes and I’ve seen the a full carbon Cell and was not impressed. It’s noodle-like frame would hardly be a rewarding ride. That said, you wonder how much can go wrong on a single speed double butted 4130 steel frame? And the spec sheet reads well. It’s $599 with free shipping to the Gold Coast. I’d be tempted. (I’d certainly like to hear from anyone who has one!)
