Gary Fisher introduces the Gritty, styled after the freestyle fixed gear bikes that are the new trend in the fixed gear scene. The price tag at $439 isn’t a bad place to start for your freestyle-esque bike but as a commuter I see huge potential.
This 4130 steel bike comes outfitted with BMX 3 piece cranks, 700x28c tires and braze ons for your rack or fenders. A 17t freewheel will make you fork out another $10-30 for a fixed gear cog if fixie is your taste.
We should have one of these in our hands later this fall for a full review from the commuter side first and then from the fixed gear freestyle side as a second review series.
