by elementalfromgood basic city bikeI needed a new bike when I recently moved to a new city. I had to sell my Specialized Langster before moving. And since I was on a budget, I found this sale to be too good to resist. Assembly is very simple. Just need an allen wrench set, and a 15 wrench for the wheels. Mine was missing the water bottle - but I contacted MiiR, and they are sending me one separately. A note on sizing: I'm 5'9", but I guess I have a disproportionately small torso. On my Langster (54cm frame) I had to buy a different handlebar because the reach was too far. So for the MiiR, I went with the 52cm and it's a good fit. Good geometry on this bike. While it's much heavier than the Langster (CroMoly vs. Aluminum + Carbon fork) it's still lighter than most intro level SS/Fixed bikes.
