Critical Cycles Fixed-Gear Pista Bicycle - Cream


Our hand-built cream fixed-gear bicycle features deep-v wheels, flip-flop hub, lightweight components, and the tools you need to build and maintain your bike.


* Required Fields



CriticalCycles' fixed-gear bikes are hand built for the commuter lifestyle with a tig-welded steel frame that comes with horizontal dropouts and a component set that is ideal for commuting around town, riding on the beach boardwalk, and exercise or endurance cycling.

This all-new fixie bike comes with Pista handlebars which closely mimic the shape of track bars, which provides more clearance for the arms when sprinting out of the saddle than any other road bar shape. The Cream Pista Fixie includes a flip-flop hub so that you can ride it as fixed-gear or easily switch cogs and cruise on your freewheel like a standard single-speed bicycle.

Also, you won't have to worry about potholes and rough asphalt with your Wanda tires that have been optimized for city riding. The bottom bracket comes sealed cartridge on every bike, so moisture or dirt will never cause problems.

We've carefully selected Protek cranks, Sunrun freewheel, KMC chain, Well-Go pedals, Stainless Steel Spokes and Promax brakes, to make sure that your fixed gear bike will be dependable day-in-day-out and for many years to come.

Included with all of our fixed-gear bikes are three sizes of Allen wrench and a Cone wrench so that you have all the tools you need to get your bike on the road.

Available in frame sizes 43cm, 49cm, 53cm, 57cm, 60cm and several colors to choose from. Critical Cycles offers the best selection of urban lifestyle and city commuter fixie bicycles anywhere!

Our size chart is only a suggestion, and may not be 100% accurate for every individual. Sizes may vary depending on individual inseam length.

Recommended Weight Limit: 250 lbs

We highly recommend having your bicycle built by a professional bike mechanic to ensure that all assembly is accurate and complete, including the tightening of the cog and lockring (which can only be done with special tools), the adjusting of brakes, and the truing of wheels, if necessary.

Please refer to our Assembly Instructions
