Fixie builder for the not-so-do-it-your-self-er.

You pick out the colors, Republic builds and ships it to you. We like the flip-flop fixed/free hub that comes standard. All for $378 delivered. Beard and shants not included.

This was on Urban Velo yesterday. I think these are pretty cool. It looks like they have gained so much popularity that there is only one frame size currently in stock. It seems like a very reasonable price to pay for a customizable complete bike that comes with a Flip/Flop hub. I am curious as to how heavy the frame is. Schwinn made a track bike that retails for $300 called “The Cutter”, but it is only a single speed (no flip/flop hub), and you don’t have quite the custom options as with the Republic bikes. “The Cutter” is a fairly heavy frame too. The Republic bikes come with some nice components, I really dig the Sugino cranks that come with the setup.
