8 reasons to buy

  • The handlebars were described as comfortable by one expert, while the Oury brand grips were noted as a quality brand.
  • Satisfied riders appreciated the wide range of color combinations – and the look of the wide rim wheels.
  • The steel model of 6KU’s fixed-gear has stayed consistent for years. Some users report that they have ridden this model for two or four years with few problems.
  • Several people categorized the 6KU fixie as a good casual or starter bike.
  • It is an undeniably low-cost machine. Quite a few buyers saw it as a good value purchase.
  • Some folk found it easy to assemble.
  • A few even described this ride as solid or rugged.

6 reasons not to buy

  • Multiple owners commented on how heavy the 6KU is, due to the Hi-Tensile steel frame and thick deep-v rims.
  • There were a few reports of cranks breaking and pedals shearing off.
  • More than one consumer felt that it was not a reliable long-term ride. One rider replaced all parts after 3 years of daily use.
  • Braking was often described as mediocre, especially until the brake pads wore through the painted rims.
  • It wasn’t a rarity to hear reports of the bike arriving with missing or damaged parts.
  • There was a discrepancy between colors as seen online and what was delivered.

Bottom line

It’s a low-cost singlespeed / fixed-gear bike made of a type of steel that increases weight but cuts price. The unnecessary deep-v rims looked good to consumers but added to this weight. That said, buyers found the 6KU attractive and it has its decent share of satisfied casual riders and short-distance commuters. From all the reports we read, it seems to have less problems than some other singlespeeds in this price range.
