Bombtrack-Riding-Away

Bombtrack Bikes has re-worked their street fixie into a more performance focused bike. The Script now has more aggresive geometry, meaning steeper head tube and seat tube angles, and a tapered head tube with tapered steerer tube fork.

Available with either a pursuit bar (on the black bike) that is more popular on the street, or an ergo drop bar (on the green bike) for a more performance-oriented ride. To keep it simple, the Script is available in three sizes.

The guys at Bombtrack put together a nice video showing the bike and some nice ride shots. Check out the video, a glamour shot, and the specs after the jump…

Bombtrack is from the other side of the pond, so list price is €999, but it would be about $1,175 on this side, after the currency conversion and removal of the VAT tax.

“Bombtrack Bikes has re-worked their street fixie into a more performance focused bike.” What? If it’s a track bike, call it a track bike. I can’t take anything seriously if it’s called a fixie.

dan: a ‘fixie’ is just a shorter way of saying ‘fixed gear’. track bikes are also fixed gears. hope i could shed some light on your confusion. i just started riding bikes (seriously) last summer, and ride a fixie. its great. you really get a zen like experience, and some shops around my house have great deals on them too. i was able to pick mine up complete for $299. Those bombtrack bikes are sweet, but i would think for the price they would include some cool neon parts to accent it.

@Jhan not to be argumentative but no track rider ever references their bike as a ‘fixie’, it’s a ‘track bike’.

And if you have only been riding ‘seriously’ for less than a year, you have a lot of riding to do to see what other ‘Zen like’ experiences are waiting for you on a bike, many of which involve gears and potentially lots of them. 😉

Whenever I am tempted to slam fixies or the culture around them I realize that hey, at least they’re on bikes.

Nylon platform pedals on a $1,175 bike… Definitely aimed at hipsters. Yup.
But, hadn’t the hipster scene became a barren wasteland?
I haven’t seen a single fixie/hipster in quite a while.

cool video but riding on the road without brakes isn’t a good idea
