BikeRide finds and shows you the best prices of the bikes you want to buy. Prices constantly change and it’s impossible to compare them all yourself.

We search for prices on over 120 bike retailers to guarantee that we find the lowest prices – to save you time and money.

It’s a promise we stand behind: If you find a lower price on a bike elsewhere, we will sell it to you for 10% less. For example, if you find a bike for $480 that we have listed at $500, we will offer you to buy it for $432 through BikeRide. The bike must be the same color and size, sold in the US and not include the use of a coupon.

If you find a lower price, email us at contact@bikeride.com with documentation of the price. We’re committed to making sure that the cost of a bike does not keep you from cycling!

11 reasons to buy

  • Double-butted chromoly tubing made for a frame that’s light and strong.
  • 30mm deep aero rims were stiff and robust on city streets.

  • You may have to hunt a little, to find an Orro FE in your size.
  • Unpretentious bikes like the FE hold less cachet with some of the hardcore fixie crowd.

Bottom line

Orro’s FE Street is definitely the simplest and most affordable bike in their fleet of high-end rigs. Many of the FE Street’s components are sourced or machined from Orro’s own workshop. This means that the cost is kept low, while quality can be relied upon. High-flange, sealed hubs are coupled with deep aero rims. A flip-flop hub comes standard, with an 18 tooth freewheel on one side and an 18 tooth fixed gear cog on the other. The aesthetic is more ‘sophisticated’ than flashy, with a faux brown-leather and tan theme applied to the saddle, griptape and tires. There are reflective decals on the modest black paintwork and cables, for nighttime visibility. The geometry and 48/18 ratio cater to stop-start city riding and a more-casual, less-racy approach. Due to high popularity and relatively low production numbers, you might have to fossick for an Orro FE in your size. However, once unearthed, this is a simple city bike that won’t plague you with endless mechanical, upgrade and safety issues that are unavoidable when you buy a bottom-rung, big-box, no-name ‘fixie’ from one of the online Big Boys.
