noisy bottom bracket, but a solid and cheap ride to get a short commute done.

Great bike- nice frame. I haven't had the bottom bracket issues, and I leave mine in the weather way too much. Though for commuting, you may want to change out the the drivetrain; it's set up for the track, for sure. I'm now running a 44x17 fixed and it's great for the short hills around town. I'd definitely recommend it for short runs around town; if I had it to do over I'd opt for something I could have dedicated fenders and rack on. However, for the fenders, I've been using the Planetbike SpeedEZs (Road), and they work great! But this isn't a bike I wouldn't own- it's too much fun in town!!
