    Please, your thoughts on the 09 Jamis Beatnik

    Hello, I'm new here. I just bought a 09 Jamis Beatnik for $340. I wanted a single speed because they seem easier to maintain. This is my first bike since I was like 14 years old. I would really like your thoughts on this bike and from those of you who have this bike. Thanks

    It's a really cool bike.
    Dimensionally, it's identical to the Spunik, size for size.
    It uses the less costly Reynolds 520 instead of the 631 on the Spuynik.
    And, it uses a steel fork instead of a carbon fork.
    I prefer a steel fork so that's a plus for the Beatnik.

    I like the name. I used to be a beatnik.

    I can say that aesthetically I didn't care for it and I was suprised by how heavy it feels, but my reference is an aluminum entry-level road bike. That said even my friend's pieced together fixie is a lot lighter than this thing.
