Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the this bike. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

5 reasons to buy

  • The TRKLRD differs from its predecessor (The Phantom), in that it has adopted an exaggerated aero-design that many owners loved. The look itself gave an impression of speed.
  • With its tight geometry, it delivered a fast, responsive and aggressive ride.
  • Many owners felt that the TRKLRD offered a lot for the price.
  • The frame is aluminum. The fork and seatpost are carbon. This offered riders a pleasingly light weight of 18 pounds.
  • Some owners described the TRKLRD as a good quality build.

4 reasons not to buy

  • One owner’s frame snapped while they were riding. The owner claimed not to have misused their bike.
  • The frame breakage could be viewed as a rarity. However, two buyers reported receiving frames with ‘defective’ welding, which the manufacturer hastily replaced.
  • An owner had to re-seat the headset themselves. This is an important component that should really arrive correctly assembled.
  • Some felt that the stock gear ratio (48:16) was a little hard-going.

Bottom line

This is an aggressive fixed-gear street-bike, aimed at those that value a racy look and feel. Despite the oversized down-tube, the aluminum frame impressed with its light weight. Coupled with a carbon seat-post and fork, this seems to be a good-value deal. The only brand-name parts on the bike are the hubs and tires. Novatec hubs are known for running well but begging better protection from the elements. Kenda tires are considered entry level. That said, there were no complaints about the performance of other parts. The main concern is the report of frame-breakage and welding faults. The TRKLRD is a good price for a flashier style of fixie. Just check your frame before you ride.
